023:003:001
For,
behold,
the Lord,
the LORD of hosts,
doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff,
the whole stay of bread,
and the whole stay of water.


023:003:002
The mighty man,
and the man of war,
the judge,
and the prophet,
and the prudent,
and the ancient,


023:003:003
The captain of fifty,
and the honourable man,
and the counsellor,
and the cunning artificer,
and the eloquent orator.


023:003:004
And I will give children to be their princes,
and babes shall rule over them.


023:003:005
And the people shall be oppressed,
every one by another,
and every one by his neighbour:
the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient,
and the base against the honourable.


023:003:006
When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father,
saying,
Thou hast clothing,
be thou our ruler,
and let this ruin be under thy hand:


023:003:007
In that day shall he swear,
saying,
I will not be an healer;
for in my house is neither bread nor clothing:
make me not a ruler of the people.


023:003:008
For Jerusalem is ruined,
and Judah is fallen:
because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD,
to provoke the eyes of his glory.


023:003:009
The shew of their countenance doth witness against them;
and they declare their sin as Sodom,
they hide it not.
Woe unto their soul!
for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.


023:003:010
Say ye to the righteous,
that it shall be well with him:
for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.


023:003:011
Woe unto the wicked!
it shall be ill with him:
for the reward of his hands shall be given him.


023:003:012
As for my people,
children are their oppressors,
and women rule over them.
O my people,
they which lead thee cause thee to err,
and destroy the way of thy paths.


023:003:013
The LORD standeth up to plead,
and standeth to judge the people.


023:003:014
The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people,
and the princes thereof:
for ye have eaten up the vineyard;
the spoil of the poor is in your houses.


023:003:015
What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces,
and grind the faces of the poor?
saith the Lord GOD of hosts.


023:003:016
Moreover the LORD saith,
Because the daughters of Zion are haughty,
and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes,
walking and mincing as they go,
and making a tinkling with their feet:


023:003:017
Therefore the LORD will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion,
and the LORD will discover their secret parts.


023:003:018
In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet,
and their cauls,
and their round tires like the moon,


023:003:019
The chains,
and the bracelets,
and the mufflers,


023:003:020
The bonnets,
and the ornaments of the legs,
and the headbands,
and the tablets,
and the earrings,


023:003:021
The rings,
and nose jewels,


023:003:022
The changeable suits of apparel,
and the mantles,
and the wimples,
and the crisping pins,


023:003:023
The glasses,
and the fine linen,
and the hoods,
and the vails.


023:003:024
And it shall come to pass,
that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink;
and instead of a girdle a rent;
and instead of well set hair baldness;
and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth;
and burning instead of beauty.


023:003:025
Thy men shall fall by the sword,
and thy mighty in the war.


023:003:026
And her gates shall lament and mourn;
and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.
