1This is what Yahweh says: “For three transgressions of Moab, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; because he burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime;
  2so I will send a fire on Moab, and it will devour the palaces of Kerioth, and Moab will die with tumult, with shouting and with the sound of the shofar;
  3and I will cut off the judge from their midst, and will kill all its officials with him,” says Yahweh.
 

4This is what Yahweh says: “For three transgressions of Judah, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; because they have rejected Yahweh’s law and have not kept his statutes, and their lies have led them astray, after which their fathers walked.
  5But I will send a fire on Judah, and it will devour the strongholds of Jerusalem.”
 

6This is what Yahweh says: “For three transgressions of Israel, yes, for four, I will not turn away its punishment; because they have sold the righteous for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals;
  7They trample on the heads of the poor as on the dust of the earth, and deny justice to the oppressed. And a man and his father go into the same girl thereby profaning my holy name.
  8And they lay themselves down beside every altar on clothes taken in pledge, and in the house of their God they drink the wine taken as fines.
  9Yet I destroyed the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above and his roots from beneath.
  10Also I brought you up out of the land of Egypt and led you forty years in the wilderness, to possess the land of the Amorite.
  11I raised up some of your sons for prophets, and some of your young men for Nazirites. Is this not true, O children of Israel?” says Yahweh.
  12“But you gave the Nazirites wine to drink, and commanded the prophets, saying, ‘Do not prophesy!’
  13Behold, I will crush you in your place as a cart crushes that is full of grain.
  14Flight will perish from the swift, and the strong will not muster his strength; nor will the mighty warrior deliver himself,
  15nor will he who handles the bow stand his ground; and he who is swift of foot will not escape, nor will he who rides the horse deliver himself;
  16and he who is courageous among the mighty warriors will flee away naked on that day,” says Yahweh.
