1 Judgment from the north
1 If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the Lord, ch. 3:1,22;Joel 2:12return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove.
2 Deut. 10:20;Is. 45:23;& 65:16;See ch. 5:2And thou shalt swear, The Lord liveth, Is. 48:1;Zech. 8:8in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; Gen. 22:18;Ps. 72:17;Gal. 3:8and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they 1 Cor. 1:31glory.
3 For thus saith the Lord to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Hos. 10:12Break up your fallow ground, and Mat. 13:7sow not among thorns.
4 Deut. 10:16;ch. 9:26;Rom. 2:28Circumcise yourselves to the Lord, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.
5 Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow ye the trumpet in the land: cry, gather together, and say, ch. 8:14Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defenced cities.
7 2 Ki. 24:1;ch. 5:6;Dan. 7:4The lion is come up from his thicket, and ch. 25:9the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place Is. 1:7to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant.
8 For this Is. 22:12gird you with sackcloth, lament and howl: for the fierce anger of the Lord is not turned back from us.
9 And it shall come to pass at that day, saith the Lord, that the heart of the king shall perish, and the heart of the princes; and the priests shall be astonished, and the prophets shall wonder.
10 (Then said I, Ah, Lord God! Ezek. 14:9;2 Thes. 2:11surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, ch. 14:13saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword reacheth unto the soul).
11 At that time shall it be said to this people and to Jerusalem, 11 ch. 51:1;Ezek. 17:10;Hos. 13:15A dry wind of the high places in the wilderness toward the daughter of my people, 11 Not to fan, nor to cleanse,
13 Behold, he shall come up as clouds, 13 And Is. 5:28his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: 13 Deut. 28:49;Lam. 4:19;Hos. 8:1;Hab. 1:8His horses are swifter than eagles. 13 Woe unto us! for we are spoiled.
19 My Is. 15:5;& 16:11;& 21:3;See Luke 19:42bowels, my bowels! I am pained at [e]my very heart; 19 My heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, 19 Because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war.
21 How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet?
28 For this Hos. 4:3shall the earth mourn, and Is. 5:30;& 50:3the heavens above be black: 28 Because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, 28 And Num. 23:19;ch. 7:16will not repent, neither will I turn back from it.
30 And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? 30 Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, 30 2 Ki. 9:30Though thou rentest thy [f]face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; 30 ch. 22:20,22Thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.
31 For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, 31 The voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that Is. 1:15;Lam. 1:17spreadeth her hands, 31 Saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers.
