1890 Darby's Translation of the Holy Scriptures (DBY)
6:1 ¶ Woe to them that are at ease in Zion and that are secure in the mountain of Samaria, the renowned of the first of the nations, to whom the house of Israel come.
6:2 Pass unto Calneh, and see; and from thence go to Hamath the great; and go down to Gath of the Philistines: are they better than these kingdoms? or their border greater than your border?
6:3 Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near;
6:4 that lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves from the midst of the stall;
6:5 that chant to the sound of the lute, [and] invent them instruments of music, like David;
6:6 that drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments; but are not grieved for the breach of Joseph.
6:7 ¶ Therefore shall they now go captive, with the first that go captive, and the revelry of them that stretched themselves shall pass away.
6:9 And it shall come to pass, if there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die.
6:10 And a man's uncle, and he that should burn him, shall take him up to bring out the bones from the house, and shall say unto him that is in the inner parts of the house, Is there yet [any] with thee? and he shall say, None. And he will say, Silence! for we may not make mention of Jehovah's name.
6:12 ¶ Shall horses run upon the rock? will [men] plough [thereon] with oxen? For ye have turned judgment into gall, and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood,
6:13 ye that rejoice in a thing of nought, that say, Have we not taken to us power by our own strength?
