1 Israel's immorality
1 Hear the word of the Lord, ye children of Israel: 1 For the Lord hath a Is. 1:18controversy with the inhabitants of the land, 1 Because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor Jer. 4:22knowledge of God in the land.
3 Therefore Amos 5:16shall the land mourn, 3 And Zeph. 1:3every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, 3 With the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; 3 Yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
6 Is. 5:13My people are [c]destroyed for lack of knowledge, 6 Because thou hast rejected knowledge, 6 I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: 6 Seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, 6 I will also forget thy children.
11 Whoredom and wine and new wine Is. 28:7take away the heart.
12 My people ask counsel at their Jer. 2:27stocks, 12 And their staff declareth unto them: 12 For Is. 44:20the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, 12 And they have gone a whoring from under their God.
13 Is. 1:29;Ezek. 6:13They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, 13 And burn incense upon the hills, 13 Under oaks and poplars and elms, 13 Because the shadow thereof is good: 13 Amos 7:17;Rom. 1:28Therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, 13 And your spouses shall commit adultery.
14 [g]I will not punish your daughters when they commit whoredom, 14 Nor your spouses when they commit adultery: 14 For themselves are separated with whores, 14 And they sacrifice with harlots: 14 Therefore the people that doth not understand shall [h]fall.
