12 The Lord, the Lord Almighty,
    called you on that day(A)
to weep(B) and to wail,
    to tear out your hair(C) and put on sackcloth.(D)
13 But see, there is joy and revelry,(E)
    slaughtering of cattle and killing of sheep,
    eating of meat and drinking of wine!(F)
“Let us eat and drink,” you say,
    “for tomorrow we die!”(G)

14 The Lord Almighty has revealed this in my hearing:(H) “Till your dying day this sin will not be atoned(I) for,” says the Lord, the Lord Almighty.
