3:4 Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured c harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts.

3:18 Thy f shepherds slumber, O king of Assyria: thy nobles shall dwell [in the dust]: thy people is scattered upon the mountains, and no man gathereth [them].
    (f) Your princes and counsellors.

3:19 [There is] no healing of thy bruise; thy wound is grievous: all that hear the bruit of thee shall clap the hands over thee: for upon g whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually?
