    5:1 Hear 8085 8798 ye this word 1697 which I take up 5375 8802 against you, [even] a lamentation 7015, O house 1004 of Israel 3478.

    5:2 The virgin 1330 of Israel 3478 is fallen 5307 8804; she shall no more 3254 8686 rise 6965 8800: she is forsaken 5203 8738 upon her land 127; [there is] none to raise her up 6965 8688.

    5:3 For thus saith 559 8804 the Lord 136 GOD 3069; The city 5892 that went out 3318 8802 [by] a thousand 505 shall leave 7604 8686 an hundred 3967, and that which went forth 3318 8802 [by] an hundred 3967 shall leave 7604 8686 ten 6235, to the house 1004 of Israel 3478.

    5:4 For thus saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068 unto the house 1004 of Israel 3478, Seek 1875 8798 ye me, and ye shall live 2421 8798:

    5:5 But seek 1875 8799 not Bethel 1008, nor enter 935 8799 into Gilgal 1537, and pass 5674 8799 not to Beersheba 884: for Gilgal 1537 shall surely 1540 8800 go into captivity 1540 8799, and Bethel 1008 shall come to nought 205.

    5:6 Seek 1875 8798 the LORD 3068, and ye shall live 2421 8798; lest he break out 6743 8799 like fire 784 in the house 1004 of Joseph 3130, and devour 398 8804 [it], and [there be] none to quench 3518 8764 [it] in Bethel 1008.

    5:7 Ye who turn 2015 8802 judgment 4941 to wormwood 3939, and leave off 3240 8689 righteousness 6666 in the earth 776,

    5:8 [Seek him] that maketh 6213 8802 the seven stars 3598 and Orion 3685, and turneth 2015 8802 the shadow of death 6757 into the morning 1242, and maketh the day 3117 dark 2821 8689 with night 3915: that calleth 7121 8802 for the waters 4325 of the sea 3220, and poureth them out 8210 8799 upon the face 6440 of the earth 776: The LORD 3068 [is] his name 8034:

    5:9 That strengtheneth 1082 8688 the spoiled 7701 against the strong 5794, so that the spoiled 7701 shall come 935 8799 against the fortress 4013.(spoiled: Heb. spoil)

    5:10 They hate 8130 8804 him that rebuketh 3198 8688 in the gate 8179, and they abhor 8581 8762 him that speaketh 1696 8802 uprightly 8549.

    5:11 Forasmuch 3282 therefore as your treading 1318 8780 [is] upon the poor 1800, and ye take 3947 8799 from him burdens 4864 of wheat 1250: ye have built 1129 8804 houses 1004 of hewn stone 1496, but ye shall not dwell 3427 8799 in them; ye have planted 5193 8804 pleasant 2531 vineyards 3754, but ye shall not drink 8354 8799 wine 3196 of them.(pleasant…: Heb. vineyards of desire)

    5:12 For I know 3045 8804 your manifold 7227 transgressions 6588 and your mighty 6099 sins 2403: they afflict 6887 8802 the just 6662, they take 3947 8802 a bribe 3724, and they turn aside 5186 8689 the poor 34 in the gate 8179 [from their right].(a bribe: or, a ransom)

    5:13 Therefore the prudent 7919 8688 shall keep silence 1826 8799 in that time 6256; for it [is] an evil 7451 time 6256.

    5:14 Seek 1875 8798 good 2896, and not evil 7451, that ye may live 2421 8799: and so the LORD 3068, the God 430 of hosts 6635, shall be with you, as ye have spoken 559 8804.

    5:15 Hate 8130 8798 the evil 7451, and love 157 8798 the good 2896, and establish 3322 8685 judgment 4941 in the gate 8179: it may be that the LORD 3068 God 430 of hosts 6635 will be gracious 2603 8799 unto the remnant 7611 of Joseph 3130.

    5:16 Therefore the LORD 3068, the God 430 of hosts 6635, the Lord 136, saith 559 8804 thus; Wailing 4553 [shall be] in all streets 7339; and they shall say 559 8799 in all the highways 2351, Alas 1930! alas 1930! and they shall call 7121 8804 the husbandman 406 to mourning 60, and such as are skilful 3045 8802 of lamentation 5092 to wailing 4553.

    5:17 And in all vineyards 3754 [shall be] wailing 4553: for I will pass 5674 8799 through 7130 thee, saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068.

    5:18 Woe 1945 unto you that desire 183 8693 the day 3117 of the LORD 3068! to what end 4100 [is] it for you? the day 3117 of the LORD 3068 [is] darkness 2822, and not light 216.

    5:19 As if a man 376 did flee 5127 8799 from 6440 a lion 738, and a bear 1677 met 6293 8804 him; or went 935 8804 into the house 1004, and leaned 5564 8804 his hand 3027 on the wall 7023, and a serpent 5175 bit 5391 8804 him.

    5:20 [Shall] not the day 3117 of the LORD 3068 [be] darkness 2822, and not light 216? even very dark 651, and no brightness 5051 in it?

    5:21 I hate 8130 8804, I despise 3988 8804 your feast days 2282, and I will not smell 7306 8686 in your solemn assemblies 6116.(in…: or, your holy days)

    5:22 Though ye offer 5927 8686 me burnt offerings 5930 and your meat offerings 4503, I will not accept 7521 8799 [them]: neither will I regard 5027 8686 the peace offerings 8002 of your fat beasts 4806.(peace…: or, thank offerings)

    5:23 Take thou away 5493 8685 from me the noise 1995 of thy songs 7892; for I will not hear 8085 8799 the melody 2172 of thy viols 5035.

    5:24 But let judgment 4941 run down 1556 8735 as waters 4325, and righteousness 6666 as a mighty 386 stream 5158.(run: Heb. roll)

    5:25 Have ye offered 5066 8689 unto me sacrifices 2077 and offerings 4503 in the wilderness 4057 forty 705 years 8141, O house 1004 of Israel 3478?

    5:26 But ye have borne 5375 8804 the tabernacle 5522 of your Moloch 4428 and Chiun 3594 your images 6754, the star 3556 of your god 430, which ye made 6213 8804 to yourselves.(the tabernacle…: or, Siccuth your king)

    5:27 Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity 1540 8689 beyond 1973 Damascus 1834, saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068, whose name 8034 [is] The God 430 of hosts 6635.
