eThe end is come upon my people of Israel;
dI will not again pass by them any more.
Even to make kthe poor of the land to fail,
oMaking the ephah small, and the shekel great,
6 That we may buy the poor qfor silver,
qAnd the needy for a pair of shoes;
Surely uI will never forget any of their works.
xAnd it shall rise up wholly as a flood;
9 And it shall come to pass †in that day, saith the Lord God,
That yyI will cause the sun to go down at noon,
And zI will darken the earth in the clear day:
10 And aI will turn your feasts into mourning,
And all your songs into lamentation;
And cbaldness upon every head;
And I will make it das the mourning of an only son,
That fI will send a famine in the land,
Not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
They shall krun to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.
And say, Thy god, qO Dan, liveth;
Even they shall fall, and never rise up again.
