The Lord’s Covenant Lawsuit against the Nation Israel
4:1 Hear the word of the Lord, you Israelites!1
For the Lord has a covenant lawsuit2 against the people of Israel.3
For there is neither faithfulness nor loyalty in the land,
nor do they acknowledge God.4
4:2 There is only cursing, lying, murder, stealing, and adultery.
They resort to violence and bloodshed.5
4:3 Therefore the land will mourn,
and all its inhabitants will perish.6
The wild animals,7 the birds of the sky,
and even the fish in the sea will perish.
