The Wickedness of Judah

gHear, O heavens, and give ear, O hearth;

for the Lord has spoken:

Children1 ihave I reared and brought up,

but they have rebelled against me.


gThe earth shall be utterly empty and utterly plundered;

hfor the Lord has spoken this word.


gAnd the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,

and all flesh shall see it together,

hfor the mouth of the Lord has spoken.


14  then you shall take delight in the Lord,

yand I will make you ride on the heights of the earth;1

zI will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father,

afor the mouth of the Lord has spoken.


qbut they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree,

rand no one shall make them afraid,

sfor the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken.


19  cGod is not man, that he should lie,

or a son of man, that he should change his mind.

Has he said, and will he not do it?

Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?
