2 Hear ye, O mountains, the Lord’s controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth: for the Lord hath a controversy with his people, and he will plead with Israel.
3 O my people, what have I done unto thee? and wherein have I wearied thee? testify against me.
4 For I brought thee up out of the land of * Egypt, and redeemed thee out of the house of servants; and I sent before thee Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.
6 ¶ Wherewith shall I come before the Lord,and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves † of a year old?
7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my † body for the sin of my soul?
9 The Lord’s voice crieth unto the city, and ∥the man of wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.
11∥ Shall I count them pure with the wicked balances, and with the bag of deceitful weights?
12 For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
13 Therefore also will I make thee sick in smiting thee, in making thee desolate because of thy sins.
14 Thou shalt eat, but not be satisfied; and thy casting down shall be in the midst of thee; and thou shalt take hold, but shalt not deliver; and that which thou deliverest will I give up to the sword.
15 Thou shalt * sow, but thou shalt not reap; thou shalt tread the olives, but thou shalt not anoint thee with oil; and sweet wine, but shalt not drink wine.
16 ¶ For ∥ the statutes of * Omri are kept, and all the works of the house of * Ahab, and ye walk in their counsels; that I should make thee a ∥ desolation, and the inhabitants thereof an hissing: therefore ye shall bear the reproach of my people.
