1 a, behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, doth take away from b and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of c, and the whole stay of water,
2 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the a,
3 The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and a, and the b.
4 And I will give a to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.
5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the a, and the base against the honourable.
6 When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this a be under thy hand:
7 In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be a; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.
8 For a is ruined, and Judah is b: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory.
9 ¶The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their a as b, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.
10 Say ye to the a, that it shall be well with him: for they shall b the fruit of their doings.
11 Woe unto the a! it shall be ill with him: for b reward of his hands shall be given him.
12 ¶As for my people, children are their oppressors, and a rule over them. O my people, they which b thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
13 The Lord standeth up to a, and standeth to judge the people.
14 The Lord will enter into a with the b of his people, and the c thereof: for ye have d the vineyard; the e of the f is in your houses.
15 What mean ye that ye a my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the Lord God of hosts.
16 ¶Moreover the Lord saith, Because the a of Zion are b, and c with stretched forth necks and d eyes, walking and e as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:
17 Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will a.
18 In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their a, and their b tires like the moon,
19 The chains, and the bracelets, and the a,
20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,
21 The rings, and nose jewels,
22 The a of b, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,
23 The a, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the veils.
24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a; and instead of well set hair b; and instead of c a girding of sackcloth; and d instead of e.
25 Thy a shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war.
26 And her a shall b and c; and she being d shall sit upon the e.
