King James Bible
Run ye to and fro33 through the streets of Jerusalem, and see3 now, and know,3 and seek16 in the broad places thereof, if ye can find4 a man, if there be [any] that executeth6 judgment, that seeketh18 the truth; and I will pardon4 it.
O LORD, [are] not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken52 them, but they have not grieved;1 thou hast consumed14 them, [but] they have refused14 to receive2 correction: they have made their faces harder14 than a rock; they have refused14 to return.2
I will get4 me unto the great men, and will speak17 unto them; for they have known1 the way of the LORD, [and] the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken1 the yoke, [and] burst14 the bonds.
Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay52 them, [and] a wolf of the evenings shall spoil4 them, a leopard shall watch6 over their cities: every one that goeth out6 thence shall be torn in pieces:11 because their transgressions are many,1 [and] their backslidings are increased.1
How shall I pardon4 thee for this? thy children have forsaken1 me, and sworn11 by [them that are] no gods: when I had fed them to the full,55 they then committed adultery,4 and assembled108 themselves by troops in the harlots'6 houses.
Lo, I will bring56 a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith7 the LORD: it [is] a mighty nation, it [is] an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest4 not, neither understandest4 what they say.17
And they shall eat up1 thine harvest, and thy bread, [which] thy sons and thy daughters should eat:4 they shall eat up4 thy flocks and thine herds: they shall eat up4 thy vines and thy fig trees: they shall impoverish25 thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst,6 with the sword.
And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say,4 Wherefore 4100 doeth1 the LORD our God all these [things] unto us? then shalt thou answer1 them, Like as ye have forsaken1 me, and served4 strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve4 strangers5 in a land [that is] not yours.
Fear4 ye not me? saith7 the LORD: will ye not tremble4 at my presence, which have placed1 the sand [for] the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass4 it: and though the waves thereof toss101 themselves, yet can they not prevail;4 though they roar,1 yet can they not pass over4 it?
They are waxen fat,1 they shine:1 yea, they overpass1 the deeds of the wicked: they judge1 not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper;55 and the right of the needy do they not judge.1
