Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 Listen to what the Lord says: Arise, judge before the mountains, and let the hills hear your voice!
2 Listen, mountains, the judgment of the Lord, and you, the firm foundation of the earth: for the Lord has judgment with his people, and with Israel he competes.
3 My people! What have I done to you and how have you been weighed down? answer me.
4 I brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, and sent before you Moses, Aaron and Mariam.
5 My people! remember what Balak the king of Moab intended, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him, and what [was] from Sittim to Gilgal, in order to know the righteous actions of the Lord for you.

6 `Why should I appear before the Lord, bow before the God of heaven? Do they come before him with burnt offerings, with annual bodies?
7 But is it possible to please the Lord with thousands of rams or uncountable streams of oil? Will I give him my firstborn for my transgression and the fruit of my womb for the sin of my soul? '
eight Oh man! I am told you that good is what the Lord requires of you: to act fairly, to love the work of mercy, and to walk humbly and wisely before your God.

nine The voice of the Lord cries out to the city, and wisdom reveres in thy name: hear the rod and the one who set it.
ten Are not even now in the house of the wicked treasure of wickedness a reduced measure, disgusting?
eleven Can I be clean with unfaithful weights and misleading weights in the bag?
12 Since his rich are filled with iniquity, and his inhabitants speak a lie, and their tongue is a deception in their mouth,
13 then I will inexorably strike you with devastation for your sins.
fourteen You will eat and you will not be full; the void will be within you; You will keep, but you will not save, and what you save, I will betray the sword.
fifteen You will sow, but you will not reap; you will crush olives, and you will not be anointed with oil; you will squeeze out grape juice, but you will not drink wine.
16 The customs of Omri and all the affairs of the house of Ahab are preserved from you, and you act on their advice; and I will deliver thee to the desolation of your inhabitants, and to reproach your inhabitants, and you shall bear reproach to My people.
