Woe <H1945> to the bloody <H1818> city! <H5892> it [is] all full <H4392> of lies <H3585> [and] robbery; <H6563> the prey <H2964> departeth <H4185> not;
2
The noise <H6963> of a whip, <H7752> and the noise <H6963> of the rattling <H7494> of the wheels, <H0212> and of the pransing <H1725> horses, <H5483> and of the jumping <H7540> chariots. <H4818>
3
The horseman <H6571> lifteth up <H5927> both the bright <H3851> sword <H2719> and the glittering <H1300> spear: <H2595> and [there is] a multitude <H7230> of slain, <H2491> and a great <H3514> number of carcases; <H6297> and [there is] none end <H7097> of [their] corpses; <H1472> they stumble <H3782> upon their corpses: <H1472>
4
Because of the multitude <H7230> of the whoredoms <H2183> of the wellfavoured <H2896> <H2580> harlot, <H2181> the mistress <H1172> of witchcrafts, <H3785> that selleth <H4376> nations <H1471> through her whoredoms, <H2183> and families <H4940> through her witchcrafts. <H3785>
5
Behold, I [am] against thee, saith <H5002> the LORD <H3068> of hosts; <H6635> and I will discover <H1540> thy skirts <H7757> upon thy face, <H6440> and I will shew <H7200> the nations <H1471> thy nakedness, <H4626> and the kingdoms <H4467> thy shame. <H7036>
6
And I will cast <H7993> abominable filth <H8251> upon thee, and make thee vile, <H5034> and will set <H7760> thee as a gazingstock. <H7210>
7
And it shall come to pass, [that] all they that look <H7200> upon thee shall flee <H5074> from thee, and say, <H0559> Nineveh <H5210> is laid waste: <H7703> who will bemoan <H5110> her? whence <H0370> shall I seek <H1245> comforters <H5162> for thee?
8
Art thou better <H3190> than populous <H0527><H0528> No, <H4996> that was situate <H3427> among the rivers, <H2975> [that had] the waters <H4325> round about <H5439> it, whose rampart <H2426> [was] the sea, <H3220> [and] her wall <H2346> [was] from the sea? <H3220>
9
Ethiopia <H3568> and Egypt <H4714> [were] her strength, <H6109> and [it was] infinite; <H0369> <H7097> Put <H6316> and Lubim <H3864> were thy helpers. <H5833>
10
Yet [was] she carried away, <H1473> she went <H1980> into captivity: <H7628> her young children <H5768> also were dashed in pieces <H7376> at the top <H7218> of all the streets: <H2351> and they cast <H3032> lots <H1486> for her honourable men, <H3513> and all her great men <H1419> were bound <H7576> in chains. <H2131>
11
Thou also shalt be drunken: <H7937> thou shalt be hid, <H5956> thou also shalt seek <H1245> strength <H4581> because of the enemy. <H0341>
12
All thy strong holds <H4013> [shall be like] fig trees <H8384> with the firstripe figs: <H1061> if they be shaken, <H5128> they shall even fall <H5307> into the mouth <H6310> of the eater. <H0398>
13
Behold, thy people <H5971> in the midst <H7130> of thee [are] women: <H0802> the gates <H8179> of thy land <H0776> shall be set wide <H6605> open <H6605> unto thine enemies: <H0341> the fire <H0784> shall devour <H0398> thy bars. <H1280>
14
Draw <H7579> thee waters <H4325> for the siege, <H4692> fortify <H2388> thy strong holds: <H4013> go <H0935> into clay, <H2916> and tread <H7429> the morter, <H2563> make strong <H2388> the brickkiln. <H4404>
15
There shall the fire <H0784> devour <H0398> thee; the sword <H2719> shall cut thee off, <H3772> it shall eat <H0398> thee up like the cankerworm: <H3218> make thyself many <H3513> as the cankerworm, <H3218> make thyself many <H3513> as the locusts. <H0697>
16
Thou hast multiplied <H7235> thy merchants <H7402> above the stars <H3556> of heaven: <H8064> the cankerworm <H3218> spoileth, <H6584> and fleeth away. <H5774>
17
Thy crowned <H4502> [are] as the locusts, <H0697> and thy captains <H2951> as the great grasshoppers, <H1462> <H1462> which camp <H2583> in the hedges <H1448> in the cold <H7135> day, <H3117> [but] when the sun <H8121> ariseth <H2224> they flee away, <H5074> and their place <H4725> is not known <H3045> where they [are]. <H0335>
18
Thy shepherds <H7462> slumber, <H5123> O king <H4428> of Assyria: <H0804> thy nobles <H0117> shall dwell <H7931> [in the dust]: thy people <H5971> is scattered <H6335> upon the mountains, <H2022> and no man gathereth <H6908> [them].
19
[There is] no healing <H3545> of thy bruise; <H7667> thy wound <H4347> is grievous: <H2470> all that hear <H8085> the bruit <H8088> of thee shall clap <H8628> the hands <H3709> over thee: for upon whom hath not thy wickedness <H7451> passed <H5674> continually? <H8548>
