Hear this word, you [well-fed, pampered] cows (women) of Bashan who are on the mountain of Samaria, Who oppress the poor, who crush the needy, Who say to their husbands, “Bring [the wine] now, and let us drink!”
Listen to this message, you cows of Bashan on the Mountain of Samaria [C mocking the wealthy women of Samaria]. You ·take things from [oppress] the poor and crush people who are in need. Then you command your husbands, “Bring us something to drink!”
Against the governors of Samaria. Hear this word, ye kine of Bashan that are in the mountain of Samaria, which oppress the poor, and destroy the needy, and they say to their masters, Bring, and let us drink.
“Listen to this, you cows of Bashan grazing on the slopes of Samaria. You women! Mean to the poor, cruel to the down-and-out! Indolent and pampered, you demand of your husbands, ‘Bring us a tall, cool drink!’
Listen to the Lord’s message, you women who live on the hill of Samaria. You treat poor people badly. You crush those who are in need. You say to your husbands, “Bring us some drinks!” But you are already as fat as the cows in Bashan.
Hear this word, you cows on the fertile pastures of Bashan, who grow fat and happy on the hillsides of Samaria, Who oppress the poor and destroy the needy while you order your husbands to do your own work.
Ye fat kine, that be in the mount of Samaria, hear this word; which make false challenge to needy men, and break poor men; which say to your lords, Bring ye, and we shall drink. (Ye fat cows of Bashan, who live on the mount of Samaria, hear this word; ye who oppress the needy, and trample down the poor; who say to your lords, or to your masters, Bring ye us something to drink!)
