What aileth thee now, that thou art wholly gone up dto the housetops?
A tumultuous city, ea joyous city:
Thy slain men are not slain with the sword,
Nor dead in battle.
All that are found in thee are bound together, which have fled from far.
Labour not to comfort me, because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people.
Breaking down the walls, and of ocrying to the mountains.
6 And pElam bare the quiver
With qchariots of men and horsemen,
And the horsemen shall set themselves in array ||at the gate.
8 And the discovered the covering of Judah,
9 wYe have seen also the breaches of the city of David, that they are many:
And the houses have ye broken down to fortify the wall.
But ye have not looked unto athe maker thereof,
Neither had respect unto him that fashioned it aalong ago.
Slaying oxen, and killing sheep,
Eating flesh, and drinking wine:
fLet us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die.
14 And it was revealed gin mine ears by the Lord of hosts,
Saith the Lord God of hosts.
mThat thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here,
And that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock?
oAnd will surely cover thee.
Into a †large country:
There shalt thou die,
And there the chariots of thy glory
Shall be the shame of thy lord’s house.
21 And sI will clothe him with thy robe,
And strengthen him with thy girdle,
And sI will commit thy government into his hand:
And he shall be ta father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
And to the house of Judah.
So whe shall open, and none shall shut;
And whe shall shut, and none shall open.
23 And I will fasten him as xa nail in a sure place;
And he shall be yfor a glorious throne to his father’s house.
zThe offspring and the issue,
All vessels of small quantity,
Shall cthe nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed,
And be dcut down, and fall;
And the eburden that was upon it shall be cut off:
fFor the Lord hath spoken it.
