Hosea 4:1; Joel 1:2; Amos 3:1; Micah 1:2

The Lord Accuses Israel

kHear the word of the Lord, O children of Israel,

for lthe Lord has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land.

There is no faithfulness or steadfast love,

and mno knowledge of God in the land;


An Invasion of Locusts

aHear this, byou elders;

give ear, ball inhabitants of the land!

cHas such a thing happened in your days,

or in the days of your fathers?


Israel's Guilt and Punishment

jHear this word that the Lord has spoken against you, O people of Israel, against the whole family that I brought up out of the land of Egypt:


The Coming Destruction

eHear, you peoples, all of you;1

fpay attention, O earth, and all that is in it,

and glet the Lord God be a witness against you,

hthe Lord from his holy temple.
