1. Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of Moab, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; because he burned to lime the bones of the king of Edom.

2. So I will send a fire upon Moab, and it shall devour the strongholds of Ker'ioth, and Moab shall die amid uproar, amid shouting and the sound of the trumpet;

3. I will cut off the ruler from its midst, and will slay all its princes with him," says the LORD.

4. Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; because they have rejected the law of the LORD, and have not kept his statutes, but their lies have led them astray, after which their fathers walked.

5. So I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the strongholds of Jerusalem."

6. Thus says the LORD: "For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not revoke the punishment; because they sell the righteous for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes --

7. they that trample the head of the poor into the dust of the earth, and turn aside the way of the afflicted; a man and his father go in to the same maiden, so that my holy name is profaned;

9. "Yet I destroyed the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and who was as strong as the oaks; I destroyed his fruit above, and his roots beneath.

11. And I raised up some of your sons for prophets, and some of your young men for Nazirites. Is it not indeed so, O people of Israel?" says the LORD.

12. "But you made the Nazirites drink wine, and commanded the prophets, saying, `You shall not prophesy.'

13. "Behold, I will press you down in your place, as a cart full of sheaves presses down.

14. Flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not retain his strength, nor shall the mighty save his life;

16. and he who is stout of heart among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day," says the LORD.
