1Hear the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), you2f people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because [there is] no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] in the land.
2By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood touches blood.
3Therefore shall the land mourn, and everyone that dwells in it shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yes, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
4Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for youri people [are] as they that strive with the priest.
5Therefore shall youi fall in the day, and the prophet also shall fall with youi in the night, and I will destroy youri mother.
6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because youi have rejected knowledge, I will also reject youi, that youi shall be no priest to me: seeing youi have forgotten the law of youri God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], I will also forget youri children.
7As they were increased, so they sinned against me: [therefore] will I change their glory into shame.
8They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.
9And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.
10For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
11Whoredom and wine and New Wine take away the heart.
12My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declares unto them: for the spirit of cult prostitution has caused [them] to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered].
13They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof [is] good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.
14I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, nor your spouses when they commit adultery: for themselves are separated with whores, and they sacrifice with prostitutes: therefore the people [that] does not understand shall fall.
15Though youi, Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], play the prostitute, [yet] let not Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] offend (make angry; make one stumble; violate); and come not you2f unto Gilgal [A Wheel, Rolling], neither go you2f up to Beit-On [vanity] [house of vanity], nor swear, The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) lives.
16For Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] slides back as a backsliding heifer: now the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) will feed them as a lamb in a large place.
17Efrayim [Doubly Fruitful] [is] joined to idols: let him alone.
18Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her rulers [with] shame do love, Give you2f.
19The wind has bound her up in her wings, and they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices.
