030:002:001
Thus saith the LORD;
For three transgressions of Moab,
and for four,
I will not turn away the punishment thereof;
because he burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime:


030:002:002
But I will send a fire upon Moab,
and it shall devour the palaces of Kirioth:
and Moab shall die with tumult,
with shouting,
and with the sound of the trumpet:


030:002:003
And I will cut off the judge from the midst thereof,
and will slay all the princes thereof with him,
saith the LORD.


030:002:004
Thus saith the LORD;
For three transgressions of Judah,
and for four,
I will not turn away the punishment thereof;
because they have despised the law of the LORD,
and have not kept his commandments,
and their lies caused them to err,
after the which their fathers have walked:


030:002:005
But I will send a fire upon Judah,
and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.


030:002:006
Thus saith the LORD;
For three transgressions of Israel,
and for four,
I will not turn away the punishment thereof;
because they sold the righteous for silver,
and the poor for a pair of shoes;


030:002:007
That pant after the dust of the earth on the head of the poor,
and turn aside the way of the meek:
and a man and his father will go in unto the same maid,
to profane my holy name:


030:002:008
And they lay themselves down upon clothes laid to pledge by every altar,
and they drink the wine of the condemned in the house of their god.


030:002:009
Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them,
whose height was like the height of the cedars,
and he was strong as the oaks;
yet I destroyed his fruit from above,
and his roots from beneath.


030:002:010
Also I brought you up from the land of Egypt,
and led you forty years through the wilderness,
to possess the land of the Amorite.


030:002:011
And I raised up of your sons for prophets,
and of your young men for Nazarites.
Is it not even thus,
O ye children of Israel?
saith the LORD.


030:002:012
But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink;
and commanded the prophets,
saying,
Prophesy not.


030:002:013
Behold,
I am pressed under you,
as a cart is pressed that is full of sheaves.


030:002:014
Therefore the flight shall perish from the swift,
and the strong shall not strengthen his force,
neither shall the mighty deliver himself:


030:002:015
Neither shall he stand that handleth the bow;
and he that is swift of foot shall not deliver himself:
neither shall he that rideth the horse deliver himself.


030:002:016
And he that is courageous among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day,
saith the LORD.
