(Scripture in Black, My Comments in Purple, Other Comments in Blue)

The destruction of Israel is lamented The Lord will gather the remnant of Israel.

 
1 Woe to them that devise iniquity,
and work evil upon their beds!
when the morning is light, they practise it,
because it is in the power of their hand.

2 And they covet fields, and take them by violence;
and houses, and take them away:
so they oppress a man and his house,
even a man and his heritage.

3 Therefore thus saith the LORD;
Behold, against this family do I devise an evil,
from which ye shall not remove your necks;
neither shall ye go haughtily:
for this time is evil.

 
4 In that day shall one take up a parable against you,
and lament with a doleful lamentation,
and say, We be utterly spoiled:
he hath changed the portion of my people:
how hath he removed it from me!
turning away he hath divided our fields.

5 Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast a cord by lot
in the congregation of the LORD.

6 Prophesy ye not,
say they to them that prophesy:
they shall not prophesy to them,
that they shall not take shame.

 
7 O thou that art named the house of Jacob,
is the spirit of the LORD straitened?
are these his doings?
do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?

8 Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy:
ye pull off the robe with the garment
from them that pass by securely
as men averse from war.

9 The women of my people have ye cast out from their pleasant houses;
from their children have ye taken away my glory for ever.

10 Arise ye, and depart;
for this is not your rest:
because it is polluted,
it shall destroy you,
even with a sore destruction.

11 If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie,
saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink;
he shall even be the prophet of this people.

 
12 I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee;
I will surely gather the remnant of Israel;
I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah,
as the flock in the midst of their fold:
they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.

13 The breaker is come up before them:
they have broken up,
and have passed through the gate,
and are gone out by it:
and their king shall pass before them,
and the LORD on the head of them.
