And hlet the Lord God be witness against you,
4 And pthe mountains shall be molten under him,
And the valleys shall be cleft,
qAs wax before the fire,
5 For rrthe transgression of Jacob is all this,
And for rrthe sins of the house of Israel.
What is the transgression of Jacob? is it not eSamaria?
And what are sthe high places of Judah? are they not Jerusalem?
And as plantings of a vineyard:
And vI will discover the foundations thereof.
7 And all the graven images thereof wshall be beaten to pieces,
And all xthe hires thereof shall be burned with the fire,
And all the idols thereof will I lay desolate:
For she gathered it xof the hire of an harlot,
And they shall return to the hire of an harlot.
For it is come unto Judah;
gHe is come unto the gate of my people, even to Jerusalem.
He shall receive of you his standing.
But revil came down from the Lord unto the gate of Jerusalem.
She is the beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion:
For uthe transgressions of Israel were found in thee.
For dthey are gone into captivity from thee.
