3 Hear this word, people of Israel, the word the Lord has spoken against you—against the whole family I brought up out of Egypt:

Does it growl in its den when it has caught nothing? 5 Does a bird swoop down to a trap on the ground when no bait is there?

8 The lion has roared— who will not fear? The Sovereign Lord has spoken— who can but prophesy?
