Hosea 4:9; Lamentations 4:16; Isaiah 3:1–3

cAnd it shall be like people, like priest;

I will punish them for their ways

and repay them for their deeds.


16  lThe Lord himself1 has scattered them;

he will regard them no more;

mno honor was shown to the priests,

nno favor to the elders.


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.
