Retribution for Israel's Sin

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
1Israel was a spreading vine; he brought forth fruit for himself. As his fruit increased, he built more altars; as his land prospered, he adorned his sacred stones.1Israel is a luxuriant vine that yields its fruit. The more his fruit increased, the more altars he built; as his country improved, he improved his pillars.1Israel is a luxuriant vine; He produces fruit for himself. The more his fruit, The more altars he made; The richer his land, The better he made the sacred pillars.1Israel is an empty vine, he bringeth forth fruit unto himself: according to the multitude of his fruit he hath increased the altars; according to the goodness of his land they have made goodly images.1Israel is a lush vine; it yields fruit for itself. The more his fruit increased, the more he increased the altars. The better his land produced, the better they made the sacred pillars.
2Their heart is deceitful, and now they must bear their guilt. The LORD will demolish their altars and destroy their sacred stones.2Their heart is false; now they must bear their guilt. The LORD will break down their altars and destroy their pillars.2Their heart is faithless; Now they must bear their guilt. The LORD will break down their altars And destroy their sacred pillars.2Their heart is divided; now shall they be found faulty: he shall break down their altars, he shall spoil their images.2Their hearts are devious; now they must bear their guilt. The LORD will break down their altars and demolish their sacred pillars.
3Then they will say, "We have no king because we did not revere the LORD. But even if we had a king, what could he do for us?"3For now they will say: “We have no king, for we do not fear the LORD; and a king—what could he do for us?”3Surely now they will say, "We have no king, For we do not revere the LORD. As for the king, what can he do for us?"3For now they shall say, We have no king, because we feared not the LORD; what then should a king do to us?3In fact, they are now saying," We have no king! For we do not fear the LORD. What can a king do for us?"
4They make many promises, take false oaths and make agreements; therefore lawsuits spring up like poisonous weeds in a plowed field.4They utter mere words; with empty oaths they make covenants; so judgment springs up like poisonous weeds in the furrows of the field.4They speak mere words, With worthless oaths they make covenants; And judgment sprouts like poisonous weeds in the furrows of the field.4They have spoken words, swearing falsely in making a covenant: thus judgment springeth up as hemlock in the furrows of the field.4They speak mere words, taking false oaths while making covenants. So lawsuits break out like poisonous weeds in the furrows of a field.

Its people will mourn over it, and so will its idolatrous priests, those who had rejoiced over its splendor, because it is taken from them into exile.5The inhabitants of Samaria tremble for the calf of Beth-aven.

6It will be carried to Assyria as tribute for the great king. Ephraim will be disgraced; Israel will be ashamed of its foreign alliances.6The thing itself shall be carried to Assyria as tribute to the great king.

They will say to the mountains, "Cover us!" and to the hills, "Fall on us!"
9"Since the days of Gibeah, you have sinned, Israel, and there you have remained. Will not war again overtake the evildoers in Gibeah?9From the days of Gibeah, you have sinned, O Israel; there they have continued. Shall not the war against the unjust overtake them in Gibeah?9From the days of Gibeah you have sinned, O Israel; There they stand! Will not the battle against the sons of iniquity overtake them in Gibeah?9O Israel, thou hast sinned from the days of Gibeah: there they stood: the battle in Gibeah against the children of iniquity did not overtake them.9Israel, you have sinned since the days of Gibeah; they have taken their stand there. Will not war against the unjust overtake them in Gibeah?

10When I please, I will punish them; nations will be gathered against them to put them in bonds for their double sin.10When I please, I will discipline them, and nations shall be gathered against them when they are bound up for their double iniquity.10When it is My desire, I will chastise them; And the peoples will be gathered against them When they are bound for their double guilt.10It is in my desire that I should chastise them; and the people shall be gathered against them, when they shall bind themselves in their two furrows.10I will discipline them at My discretion; nations will be gathered against them to put them in bondage for their two crimes.
11Ephraim is a trained heifer that loves to thresh; so I will put a yoke on her fair neck. I will drive Ephraim, Judah must plow, and Jacob must break up the ground.11Ephraim was a trained calf that loved to thresh, and I spared her fair neck; but I will put Ephraim to the yoke; Judah must plow; Jacob must harrow for himself.11Ephraim is a trained heifer that loves to thresh, But I will come over her fair neck with a yoke; I will harness Ephraim, Judah will plow, Jacob will harrow for himself.11And Ephraim is as an heifer that is taught, and loveth to tread out the corn; but I passed over upon her fair neck: I will make Ephraim to ride; Judah shall plow, and Jacob shall break his clods.11Ephraim is a well-trained calf that loves to thresh, but I will place a yoke on her fine neck.

12Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the LORD, until he comes and showers his righteousness on you.12Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the LORD, that he may come and rain righteousness upon you.12Sow with a view to righteousness, Reap in accordance with kindness; Break up your fallow ground, For it is time to seek the LORD Until He comes to rain righteousness on you.12Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.12Sow righteousness for yourselves and reap faithful love; break up your unplowed ground.

13But you have planted wickedness, you have reaped evil, you have eaten the fruit of deception. Because you have depended on your own strength and on your many warriors,13You have plowed iniquity; you have reaped injustice; you have eaten the fruit of lies. Because you have trusted in your own way and in the multitude of your warriors,13You have plowed wickedness, you have reaped injustice, You have eaten the fruit of lies. Because you have trusted in your way, in your numerous warriors,13Ye have plowed wickedness, ye have reaped iniquity; ye have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way, in the multitude of thy mighty men.13You have plowed wickedness and reaped injustice; you have eaten the fruit of lies. Because you have trusted in your own way and in your large number of soldiers,
14the roar of battle will rise against your people, so that all your fortresses will be devastated-- as Shalman devastated Beth Arbel on the day of battle, when mothers were dashed to the ground with their children.14therefore the tumult of war shall arise among your people, and all your fortresses shall be destroyed, as Shalman destroyed Beth-arbel on the day of battle; mothers were dashed in pieces with their children.14Therefore a tumult will arise among your people, And all your fortresses will be destroyed, As Shalman destroyed Beth-arbel on the day of battle, When mothers were dashed in pieces with their children.14Therefore shall a tumult arise among thy people, and all thy fortresses shall be spoiled, as Shalman spoiled Betharbel in the day of battle: the mother was dashed in pieces upon her children.14the roar of battle will rise against your people, and all your fortifications will be demolished in a day of war, like Shalman's destruction of Beth-arbel. Mothers will be dashed to pieces along with their children.
15So will it happen to you, Bethel, because your wickedness is great. When that day dawns, the king of Israel will be completely destroyed.15Thus it shall be done to you, O Bethel, because of your great evil. At dawn the king of Israel shall be utterly cut off.15Thus it will be done to you at Bethel because of your great wickedness. At dawn the king of Israel will be completely cut off.15So shall Bethel do unto you because of your great wickedness: in a morning shall the king of Israel utterly be cut off.15So it will be done to you, Bethel, because of your extreme evil. At dawn the king of Israel will be totally destroyed.
