1The Lord says:
I will not relent from punishing Moab #Is 15–16Jr 48Ezk 25:8-11
for three crimes, even four,
because he burned the bones
of the king of Edom to lime. #Lv 20:14|NoBook| 21:9
2Therefore, I will send fire against Moab,
and it will consume the citadels of Kerioth. #Jr 48:24
Moab will die with a tumult, #Jr 48:45
with shouting and the sound of the ram’s horn.
3I will cut off the judge #Ps 2:10|NoBook| 141:6 from the land
and kill all its officials #Jb 12:21Is 40:23 with him.
The Lord has spoken.
Judgment on Judah
4The Lord says:
I will not relent from punishing Judah #2Kg 17:19Hs 2:12Am 3:2
for three crimes, even four,
because they have rejected the instruction of the Lord #Jdg 2:17-202Kg 22:11-17Jr 6:19|NoBook| 8:9
and have not kept His statutes. #Jr 44:10Ezk 5:7
The lies #Is 9:15-16Jr 11:10-13|NoBook| 23:14 that their ancestors followed #Jr 9:1416:11-12Ezk 20:18
have led them astray.

and it will consume the citadels of Jerusalem.
Judgment on Israel
6The Lord says:
I will not relent from punishing Israel #2Kg 18:12
for three crimes, even four,
because they sell a righteous person for silver
and a needy person for a pair of sandals. #Dt 16:18-20Am 5:12|NoBook| 8:6
7They trample the heads of the poor #Am 5:11|NoBook| 8:4Mc 2:2
on the dust of the ground
and block the path of the needy. #Jb 24:4
A man and his father have sexual relations
with the same girl, #Hs 4:14
profaning My holy name. #Lv 18:21Pr 30:9Ezk 36:20-23
8They stretch out beside every altar #Am 3:14
on garments taken as collateral, #Ex 22:26
and in the house of their God,
they drink wine obtained through fines. #Am 4:1|NoBook| 6:6
9Yet I destroyed the Amorite #Jos 10:12 as Israel advanced;
his height #Nm 13:28-33 was like the cedars,
and he was as sturdy as the oaks;
I destroyed his fruit #Ezk 17:9Mal 4:1 above and his roots beneath.
10And I brought you from the land of Egypt #Ex 20:2Am 3:1|NoBook| 9:7
and led you 40 years in the wilderness #Dt 2:7
in order to possess the land of the Amorite. #Nm 21:25
11I raised up some of your sons as prophets #Dt 18:18-19Jr 1:4-5Am 7:14-15
and some of your young men as Nazirites. #Nm 6:1-21Jdg 13:2-51Sm 1:11
Is this not the case, Israelites?
This is the Lord’s declaration.
12But you made the Nazirites drink wine
and commanded the prophets,
“Do not prophesy.” #Jr 11:21Am 7:13
13Look, I am about to crush # Or hinder ; Hb obscure you in your place #Jl 3:13
as a wagon full of sheaves crushes grain.
14Escape will fail the swift, #Is 30:16-17
the strong one will not prevail by his strength, #Jr 9:23
and the brave will not save his life.
15The archer will not stand his ground, #Jr 51:56Ezk 39:3
the one who is swift of foot
will not save himself,
and the one riding a horse will not save his life. #Is 31:3
16Even the most courageous of the warriors
will flee naked on that day #Jdg 4:17
this is the Lord’s declaration.
