I will stand <H5975> upon my watch, <H4931> and set <H3320> me upon the tower, <H4692> and will watch <H6822> to see <H7200> what he will say <H1696> unto me, and what I shall answer <H7725> when I am reproved. <H8433>
2
And the LORD <H3068> answered <H6030> me, and said, <H0559> Write <H3789> the vision, <H2377> and make [it] plain <H0874> upon tables, <H3871> that he may run <H7323> that readeth <H7121> it.
3
For the vision <H2377> [is] yet for an appointed time, <H4150> but at the end <H7093> it shall speak, <H6315> and not lie: <H3576> though it tarry, <H4102> wait <H2442> for it; because it will surely <H0935> come, <H0935> it will not tarry. <H0309>
4
Behold, his soul <H5315> [which] is lifted up <H6075> is not upright <H3474> in him: but the just <H6662> shall live <H2421> by his faith. <H0530>
5
Yea also, because he transgresseth <H0898> by wine, <H3196> [he is] a proud <H3093> man, <H1397> neither keepeth at home, <H5115> who enlargeth <H7337> his desire <H5315> as hell, <H7585> and [is] as death, <H4194> and cannot be satisfied, <H7646> but gathereth <H0622> unto him all nations, <H1471> and heapeth <H6908> unto him all people: <H5971>
6
Shall not all these take up <H5375> a parable <H4912> against him, and a taunting <H4426> proverb <H2420> against him, and say, <H0559> Woe <H1945> to him that increaseth <H7235> [that which is] not his! how long? and to him that ladeth <H3513> himself with thick clay! <H5671>
7
Shall they not rise up <H6965> suddenly <H6621> that shall bite <H5391> thee, and awake <H3364> that shall vex <H2111> thee, and thou shalt be for booties <H4933> unto them?
8
Because thou hast spoiled <H7997> many <H7227> nations, <H1471> all the remnant <H3499> of the people <H5971> shall spoil <H7997> thee; because of men's <H0120> blood, <H1818> and [for] the violence <H2555> of the land, <H0776> of the city, <H7151> and of all that dwell <H3427> therein.
9
Woe <H1945> to him that coveteth <H1214> an evil <H7451> covetousness <H1215> to his house, <H1004> that he may set <H7760> his nest <H7064> on high, <H4791> that he may be delivered <H5337> from the power <H3709> of evil! <H7451>
10
Thou hast consulted <H3289> shame <H1322> to thy house <H1004> by cutting off <H7096> many <H7227> people, <H5971> and hast sinned <H2398> [against] thy soul. <H5315>
11
For the stone <H0068> shall cry out <H2199> of the wall, <H7023> and the beam <H3714> out of the timber <H6086> shall answer <H6030> it.
12
Woe <H1945> to him that buildeth <H1129> a town <H5892> with blood, <H1818> and stablisheth <H3559> a city <H7151> by iniquity! <H5766>
13
Behold, [is it] not of the LORD <H3068> of hosts <H6635> that the people <H5971> shall labour <H3021> in the very <H1767> fire, <H0784> and the people <H3816> shall weary <H3286> themselves for very <H1767> vanity? <H7385>
14
For the earth <H0776> shall be filled <H4390> with the knowledge <H3045> of the glory <H3519> of the LORD, <H3068> as the waters <H4325> cover <H3680> the sea. <H3220>
15
Woe <H1945> unto him that giveth his neighbour <H7453> drink, <H8248> that puttest <H5596> thy bottle <H2573> to [him], and makest [him] drunken <H7937> also, that thou mayest look <H5027> on their nakedness! <H4589>
16
Thou art filled <H7646> with shame <H7036> for glory: <H3519> drink <H8354> thou also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered: <H6188> the cup <H3563> of the LORD'S <H3068> right hand <H3225> shall be turned <H5437> unto thee, and shameful spewing <H7022> [shall be] on thy glory. <H3519>
17
For the violence <H2555> of Lebanon <H3844> shall cover <H3680> thee, and the spoil <H7701> of beasts, <H0929> [which] made them afraid, <H2865> because of men's <H0120> blood, <H1818> and for the violence <H2555> of the land, <H0776> of the city, <H7151> and of all that dwell <H3427> therein.
18
What profiteth <H3276> the graven image <H6459> that the maker <H3335> thereof hath graven <H6458> it; the molten image, <H4541> and a teacher <H3384> of lies, <H8267> that the maker <H3335> of his work <H3336> trusteth <H0982> therein, to make <H6213> dumb <H0483> idols? <H0457>
19
Woe <H1945> unto him that saith <H0559> to the wood, <H6086> Awake; <H6974> to the dumb <H1748> stone, <H0068> Arise, <H5782> it shall teach! <H3384> Behold, it [is] laid over <H8610> with gold <H2091> and silver, <H3701> and [there is] no breath <H7307> at all in the midst <H7130> of it.
20
But the LORD <H3068> [is] in his holy <H6944> temple: <H1964> let all the earth <H0776> keep silence <H2013> before <H6440> him.
