1: For, behold, the Lord, Yahweh of Hosts, takes away from Jerusalem and from Judah supply and support, The whole supply of bread, And the whole supply of water; 2: The mighty man, The man of war, The judge, The prophet, The diviner, The elder, 3: The captain of fifty, The honorable man, The counselor, The skilled craftsman, And the clever enchanter. 4: I will give boys to be their princes, And children shall rule over them. 5: The people will be oppressed, Everyone by another, And everyone by his neighbor. The child will behave himself proudly against the old man, And the base against the honorable. 6: Indeed a man shall take hold of his brother in the house of his father, saying, "You have clothing, you be our ruler, And let this ruin be under your hand." 7: In that day he will cry out, saying, I will not be a healer; For in my house is neither bread nor clothing. You shall not make me ruler of the people. 8: For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen; Because their tongue and their doings are against Yahweh, To provoke the eyes of his glory. 9: The look of their faces testify against them. They parade their sin like Sodom. They don't hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought disaster upon themselves. 10: Tell the righteous "Good!" For they shall eat the fruit of their deeds. 11: Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them; For the deeds of his hands will be paid back to him. 12: As for my people, children are their oppressors, And women rule over them. My people, those who lead you cause you to err, And destroy the way of your paths. 13: Yahweh stands up to contend, And stands to judge the peoples. 14: Yahweh will enter into judgment with the elders of his people, And their leaders: "It is you who have eaten up the vineyard. The spoil of the poor is in your houses. 15: What do you mean that you crush my people, And grind the face of the poor?" says the Lord, Yahweh of Hosts. 16: Moreover Yahweh said, "Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, And walk with outstretched necks and flirting eyes, Walking to trip as they go, Jingling ornaments on their feet; 17: Therefore the Lord brings sores on the crown of the head of the women of Zion, And Yahweh will make their scalps bald." 18: In that day the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, the headbands, the crescent necklaces, 19: the earrings, the bracelets, the veils, 20: the headdresses, the ankle chains, the sashes, the perfume bottles, the charms, 21: the signet rings, the nose rings, 22: the fine robes, the capes, the cloaks, the purses, 23: the hand-mirrors, the fine linen garments, the tiaras, and the shawls. 24: It shall happen that instead of sweet spices, there shall be rottenness; Instead of a belt, a rope; Instead of well set hair, baldness; Instead of a robe, a girding of sackcloth; And branding instead of beauty. 25: Your men shall fall by the sword, And your mighty in the war. 26: Her gates shall lament and mourn; And she shall be desolate and sit on the ground.
