Judgment on Judah

Thus says the Lord:

“For three transgressions of (A)Judah, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,
(B)Because they have despised the law of the Lord,
And have not kept His commandments.
(C)Their lies lead them astray,
Lies (D)which their fathers followed.
(E)But I will send a fire upon Judah,
And it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.”

Judgment on Israel

Thus says the Lord:

“For three transgressions of (F)Israel, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,
Because (G)they sell the righteous for silver,
And the (H)poor for a pair of sandals.
They [a]pant after the dust of the earth which is on the head of the poor,
And (I)pervert the way of the humble.
(J)A man and his father go in to the same girl,
(K)To defile My holy name.
They lie down (L)by every altar on clothes (M)taken in pledge,
And drink the wine of [b]the condemned in the house of their god.
