Judgment on Judea's Leadership
Behold, indeed the master, the LORD
of Hosts, he shall remove from Jerusalem and from Judea the
prevailing man and prevailing woman; the
strength of bread and the
strength of water;
giant and the
one prevailing, and a man warrior, and magistrate, and prophet, and thinker, and old man,
and commander of fifty, and wonderful counselor, and wise architect, and discerning listener.
And I will set young men as
their rulers; and mockers will lord over them.

against his neighbor; [3

And answering in that day, he will say, I will not be your chief, [3
my house 2
there is 4
bread], nor a garment; I will not be a chief of this people.
For Jerusalem is
forsaken, and Judea is
cast down, and their tongues speak
with lawlessness the things
against the LORD
, resisting persuasion.
Because now [2
was abased 1
their glory], and the shame of their face withstood them, and [2
their sin 3
they announced], and revealed it
. Woe to their soul, because they consulted [2
wicked] against themselves;
having said, We should bind the just, for [2
to us 1
he is]; therefore the produce of their works they shall eat.
Woe to the lawless one; evils according to the works of his hands shall come to pass against him.
O my people, your exactors glean you, and the ones exacting lord over you; O my people, the ones declaring you blessed mislead you, and [2

Judgment on the Daughters of Zion

a high neck, and with the
beckon of the
eyes, and their goings with their
feet together, dragging their inner garments, and their feet [2

ruling daughters of Zion; and the LORD
will uncover their condition.
In that day even the LORD
will remove the glory of their clothes, and the fringes, and the crescents,
and the necklace, and the ornament of their face,
and the array of the ornament of glory, and the armlets, and the bracelets, and the wreaths, and the rings, and the right armbands,
and the ear-rings, and the objects edged with purple, and the purple ornamentations,
and the cloths for the house, and the transparencies of Lakonika,
and the fine linens, and the ones of blue, and scarlet, and the linen [2
being interwoven], and the
lightweight coverings for divans.
And there will be [2
