You have not started any reading plans.
Arise, plead your case before the mountains,
and let the hills hear your voice.
and you enduring foundations of the earth;
for the Lord has a controversy with his people,
and he will contend with Israel.
In what have I wearied you? Answer me!
and redeemed you from the house of bondage;
and I sent before you Moses,
Aaron, and Miriam.
and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him,
and what happened from Shittim to Gilgal,
that you may know the saving acts of the Lord.”
and bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?
with ten thousands of rivers of oil?
Shall I give my first-born for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?”
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,p
and to walk humbly with your God?
and it is sound wisdom to fear thy name:
“Hear, O tribe and assembly of the city!q
10 Can I forgetr the treasures of wickedness in the house of the wicked,
and the scant measure that is accursed?
and with a bag of deceitful weights?
12 Yours rich men are full of violence;
yours inhabitants speak lies,
and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
13 Therefore I have begunt to smite you,
making you desolate because of your sins.
and there shall be hunger in your inward parts;
you shall put away, but not save,
and what you save I will give to the sword.
you shall tread olives, but not anoint yourselves with oil;
you shall tread grapes, but not drink wine.
16 For you have kept the statutes of Omri,u
and all the works of the house of Ahab;
and you have walked in their counsels;
that I may make you a desolation, and yourv inhabitants a hissing;
so you shall bear the scorn of the peoples.”w
