Chapter 2

1

 Woe to those who devise iniquity and work evil on their beds! when the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand.

2

 They covet fields, and seize them; and houses, and take them away: and they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.

3

 Therefore thus says Yahweh: Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which you shall not remove your necks, neither shall you walk haughtily; for it is an evil time.

4

 In that day shall they take up a parable against you, and lament with a doleful lamentation, [and] say, We are utterly ruined: he changes the portion of my people: how does he remove [it] from me! to the rebellious he divides our fields.

5

 Therefore you shall have none who shall cast the line by lot in the assembly of Yahweh.

6

 Don't you prophesy, [thus] they prophesy. They shall not prophesy to these: reproaches shall not depart.

7

 Shall it be said, O house of Jacob, Is the Spirit of Yahweh straitened? are these his doings? Do not my words do good to him who walks blamelessly?

8

 But of late my people is risen up as an enemy: you strip the robe from off the garment from those who pass by securely [as men] returned from war.

9

 The women of my people you cast out from their pleasant houses; from their young children you take away my glory forever.

10

 Arise you, and depart; for this is not your resting-place; because of uncleanness that destroys, even with a grievous destruction.

11

 If a man walking in a spirit of falsehood do lie, [saying], I will prophesy to you of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet of this people.

12

 I will surely assemble, Jacob, all of you; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as a flock in the midst of their pasture; they shall make great noise by reason of [the multitude of] men.

13

 The breaker is gone up before them: they have broken forth and passed on to the gate, and are gone out thereat; and their king is passed on before them, and Yahweh at the head of them.
