It is all full of lies and robbery;
bThe prey departeth not;
2 The noise of a whip, and cthe noise of the rattling of the wheels,
And gthere is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcases;
And there is none end of their corpses; they stumble upon their corpses:
4 Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured hharlot,
That selleth nations through hher whoredoms,
And families through her lwitchcrafts.
5 mBehold, I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts;
And nI will discover thy skirts upon thy face,
And will set thee as ra gazingstock.
vWhence shall I seek comforters for thee?
That was situate among ythe rivers, that had the waters round about it,
10 gYet was she carried away, she went into captivity:
And all her great men were bound lin chains.
11 mThou also shalt be drunken: thou shalt be hid,
Thou also shalt seek nstrength because of the enemy.
If they be shaken, they shall even fall into the mouth of the eater.
The gates of thy land shall be set wide open unto thine enemies:
The fire shall devour thy rbars.
Go into clay, and tread ttthe morter, make strong the brickkiln.
The sword shall cut thee off,
It shall eat thee up like uthe cankerworm:
Make thyself many as uthe cankerworm,
Make thyself many as uthe locusts.
16 Thou hast multiplied vthy merchants above the stars of heaven:
Which camp in the hedges in the cold day,
But when the sun ariseth they flee away,
And their place is not known where they are.
For lupon whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually?
