The L-rd GOD hath sworn by Himself, saith HaShem, the G-d of hosts: I abhor the pride of Jacob, and hate his palaces; and I will deliver up the city with all that is therein.
And it shall come to pass, if there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die.
And when a man's uncle shall take him up, even he that burneth him, to bring out the bones out of the house, and shall say unto him that is in the innermost parts of the house: 'Is there yet any with thee?' and he shall say: 'No'; then shall he say: 'Hold thy peace; for we must not make mention of the name of HaShem.'
For, behold, HaShem commandeth, and the great house shall be smitten into splinters, and the little house into chips.
Do horses run upon the rocks? Doth one plow there with oxen? that ye have turned justice into gall, and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood;
Ye that rejoice in a thing of nought, that say: 'Have we not taken to us horns by our own strength?'
For, behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel, saith HaShem, the G-d of hosts; and they shall afflict you from the entrance of Hamath unto the Brook of the Arabah.
