028:004:001
Hear the word of the LORD,
ye children of Israel:
for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land,
because there is no truth,
nor mercy,
nor knowledge of God in the land.


028:004:002
By swearing,
and lying,
and killing,
and stealing,
and committing adultery,
they break out,
and blood toucheth blood.


028:004:003
Therefore shall the land mourn,
and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish,
with the beasts of the field,
and with the fowls of heaven;
yea,
the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.


028:004:004
Yet let no man strive,
nor reprove another:
for thy people are as they that strive with the priest.


028:004:005
Therefore shalt thou fall in the day,
and the prophet also shall fall with thee in the night,
and I will destroy thy mother.


028:004:006
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:
because thou hast rejected knowledge,
I will also reject thee,
that thou shalt be no priest to me:
seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God,
I will also forget thy children.


028:004:007
As they were increased,
so they sinned against me:
therefore will I change their glory into shame.


028:004:008
They eat up the sin of my people,
and they set their heart on their iniquity.


028:004:009
And there shall be,
like people,
like priest:
and I will punish them for their ways,
and reward them their doings.


028:004:010
For they shall eat,
and not have enough:
they shall commit whoredom,
and shall not increase:
because they have left off to take heed to the LORD.


028:004:011
Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart.


028:004:012
My people ask counsel at their stocks,
and their staff declareth unto them:
for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err,
and they have gone a whoring from under their God.


028:004:013
They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains,
and burn incense upon the hills,
under oaks and poplars and elms,
because the shadow thereof is good:
therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom,
and your spouses shall commit adultery.


028:004:014
I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom,
nor your spouses when they commit adultery:
for themselves are separated with whores,
and they sacrifice with harlots:
therefore the people that doth not understand shall fall.


028:004:015
Though thou,
Israel,
play the harlot,
yet let not Judah offend;
and come not ye unto Gilgal,
neither go ye up to Bethaven,
nor swear,
The LORD liveth.


028:004:016
For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer:
now the LORD will feed them as a lamb in a large place.


028:004:017
Ephraim is joined to idols:
let him alone.


028:004:018
Their drink is sour:
they have committed whoredom continually:
her rulers with shame do love,
Give ye.


028:004:019
The wind hath bound her up in her wings,
and they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices.
