1 Audite verbum hoc, vaccae Basan, quae estis in monte Samariae, quae opprimitis egenos et vexatis pauperes, quae dicitis dominis vestris: "Affer, ut bibamus".
2 Iuravit Dominus Deus in sanctitate sua: "Ecce dies venient super vos, et levabunt vos in contis et posteros vestros in hamis piscatoriis;
3 et per aperturas exibitis altera contra alteram et proiciemini in Armon", dicit Dominus.
4 "Venite in Bethel et impie agite, ad Galgalam et multiplicate praevaricationem; et offerte mane victimas vestras, tribus diebus decimas vestras,
5 et sacrificate de fermentato laudem et vocate voluntarias oblationes et annuntiate; sic enim diligitis, filii Israel", dicit Dominus Deus.
6 "Unde et ego dedi vobis vacuitatem dentium in cunctis urbibus vestris et indigentiam panis in omnibus locis vestris; et non estis reversi ad me", dicit Dominus.
7 "Ego quoque prohibui a vobis imbrem, cum adhuc tres menses superessent usque ad messem; et plui super unam civitatem et super alteram civitatem non plui: pars una compluta est, et pars, super quam non plui, aruit.
8 Tunc fugiebant duae, tres civitates ad unam civitatem, ut biberent aquam, et non satiabantur; sed non redistis ad me", dicit Dominus.
9 "Percussi vos in vento urente et in aurugine; multitudinem hortorum vestrorum et vinearum vestrarum, ficeta vestra et oliveta vestra comedit eruca; sed non redistis ad me", dicit Dominus.
10 "Misi in vos pestem sicut pestem Aegypti, percussi in gladio iuvenes vestros, captis equis vestris; et ascendere feci putredinem castrorum vestrorum in nares vestras; sed non redistis ad me", dicit Dominus.
11 "Subverti vos, sicut subvertit Deus Sodomam et Gomorram, et facti estis quasi torris raptus ab incendio; sed non redistis ad me", dicit Dominus.
12 Quapropter haec faciam tibi, Israel, et quia haec faciam tibi, praeparare in occursum Dei tui, Israel;
13 quia ecce formans montes et creans ventum et annuntians homini cogitationem eius, faciens auroram et tenebras et gradiens super excelsa terrae; Dominus, Deus exercituum, nomen eius.
King James Version
1 Hear this word, ye kine of Bashan, that are in the mountain of Samaria, which oppress the poor, which crush the needy, which say to their masters, Bring, and let us drink.
2 The Lord GOD hath sworn by his holiness, that, lo, the days shall come upon you, that he will take you away with hooks, and your posterity with fishhooks.
3 And ye shall go out at the breaches, every cow at that which is before her; and ye shall cast them into the palace, saith the LORD.
4 ¶ Come to Beth-el, and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, and your tithes after three years:
5 And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, and proclaim and publish the free offerings: for this liketh you, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.
6 ¶ And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.
7 And also I have withholden the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.
8 So two or three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.
9 I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased, the palmerworm devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.
10 I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.
11 I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.
12 Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.
13 For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, is his name.
