For, behold, athe Lord, the Lord of hosts,
The whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water,
2 dThe mighty man, and the man of war,
The judge, and the prophet, and ethe prudent, and the ancient,
3 The captain of fifty, and †the honourable man,
4 And hI will give children to be their princes,
And ibabes shall rule over them.
5 And the people shall be joppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour:
The child shall kbehave himself proudly against the ancient,
And the base against the honourable.
6 When la man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying,
Thou hast clothing, be thou our mruler,
And let this nruin be under thy hand:
I will not be an †healer;
For in my house is neither bread nor clothing:
Make me not a mruler of the people.
8 For Jerusalem nis ruined, and Judah is fallen:
Because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord,
pTo provoke the eyes of his glory.
Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.
For uthey shall eat the fruit of their doings.
11 Woe unto the wicked! vit shall be ill with him:
And women rule over them.
O my people, ||they which lead thee cause thee to err,
And †destroy the way of thy paths.
