1 Hear this word, ye a of Bashan, that are in the mountain of b, which oppress the c, which crush the needy, which say to their masters, Bring, and let us drink.
2 The Lord God hath sworn by his a, that, lo, the days shall come upon you, that he will take you away with hooks, and your posterity with fishhooks.
3 And ye shall go out at the a, every cow at that which is before her; and ye shall cast them into the palace, saith the Lord.
4 ¶Come to Beth-el, and transgress; at a multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, and your b after three c:
5 And offer a sacrifice of a with b, and proclaim and publish the c offerings: for this liketh you, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord God.
6 ¶And I also have given you a of teeth in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not b unto me, saith the Lord.
7 And also I have withholden the a from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.
8 So two or three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.
9 I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased, the palmerworm devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.
10 I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your a men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.
11 I have overthrown some of you, as God a b and Gomorrah, and ye were as a c plucked out of the d: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.
12 Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.
13 For, lo, he that a the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his b, that maketh the c d, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The Lord, The God of hosts, is his name.
