A (6) Thus saith <0559> YAHWEH;
B (6) For three transgressions OF ISRAEL, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes;
C (7) That pant after the dust OF THE EARTH <0776> on the head of the poor,
D (7) and TURN ASIDE <05186> the way of the meek: and a man and his father will go in unto the same maid,
E (7) to profane my holy name:
D1 (8) AND THEY LAY THEMSELVES DOWN <05186> upon clothes laid to pledge by every altar, and they drink the wine of the condemned in the house of their god.
C1 (9, 10) Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from beneath. Also I brought you up FROM THE LAND <0776> of Egypt, and led you forty years through the wilderness, to possess the land of the Amorite.
B1 (11) And I raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. Is it not even thus, O ye children OF ISRAEL?
A1 (11) saith <05002> YAHWEH.
