Geneva Study Bible
   1: Thus says Yahweh: "For three transgressions of Moab, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; Because he burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime;
   2: But I will send a fire on Moab, And it will devour the palaces of Kerioth; And Moab will die with tumult, with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet;
   3: And I will cut off the judge from their midst, And will kill all its princes with him," says Yahweh.
   4: Thus says Yahweh: "For three transgressions of Judah, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; Because they have rejected the law of Yahweh, And have not kept his statutes, And their lies have led them astray, After which their fathers walked;
   5: But I will send a fire on Judah, And it will devour the palaces of Jerusalem."
   6: Thus says Yahweh: "For three transgressions of Israel, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; Because they have sold the righteous for silver, And the needy for a pair of shoes;
   7: They trample on the dust of the earth on the head of the poor, And deny justice to the oppressed; And a man and his father use the same maiden, to profane my holy name;
   8: And they lay themselves down beside every altar on clothes taken in pledge; And in the house of their God they drink the wine of those who have been fined.
   9: Yet I destroyed the Amorite before them, Whose height was like the height of the cedars, And he was strong as the oaks; Yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from beneath.
   10: Also I brought you up out of the land of Egypt, And led you forty years in the wilderness, To possess the land of the Amorite.
   11: I raised up some of your sons for prophets, And some of your young men for Nazirites. Isn't this true, You children of Israel?" says Yahweh.
   12: "But you gave the Nazirites wine to drink, And commanded the prophets, saying, 'Don't prophesy!'
   13: Behold, I will crush you in your place, As a cart crushes that is full of grain.
   14: Flight will perish from the swift; And the strong won't strengthen his force; Neither shall the mighty deliver himself;
   15: Neither shall he stand who handles the bow; And he who is swift of foot won't escape; Neither shall he who rides the horse deliver himself;
   16: And he who is courageous among the mighty will flee away naked in that day," says Yahweh.
