Habakkuk 1:5; Isaiah 3:1–4

The Lord's Answer

gLook among the nations, and see;

wonder and be astounded.

hFor I am doing a work in your days

that you would not believe if told.


Judgment on Judah and Jerusalem

For behold, the sLord God of hosts

is taking away from Jerusalem and from Judah

support and supply,1

all tsupport of bread,

and all support of water;

uthe mighty man and the soldier,

the judge and the prophet,

the diviner and the elder,

the captain of fifty

and the man of rank,

the counselor and the skillful magician

and the expert in charms.

vAnd I will make boys their princes,

and infants2 shall rule over them.
