Human pride will be humbled, and the loftiness of men will be brought low; the LORD alone will be exalted on that day.
For a day belonging to the LORD of Hosts is [coming] against all that is proud and lofty, against all that is lifted up-- it will be humbled--
against all the cedars of Lebanon, lofty and lifted up, against all the oaks of Bashan,
against all the high mountains, against all the lofty hills,
against every high tower, against every fortified wall,
against every ship of Tarshish, and against every splendid sea vessel.
So human pride will be brought low, and the loftiness of men will be humbled; the LORD alone will be exalted on that day.
The idols will vanish completely.
People will go into caves in the rocks and holes in the ground, away from the terror of the LORD and from His majestic splendor, when He rises to terrify the earth.
On that day people will throw their silver and gold idols, which they made to worship, to the moles and the bats.
They will go into the caves of the rocks and the crevices in the cliffs, away from the terror of the LORD and from His majestic splendor, when He rises to terrify the earth.
For Jerusalem has stumbled and Judah has fallen because they have spoken and acted against the LORD, defying His glorious presence.
I will put it into the hands of your tormenters, who said to you: Lie down, so we can walk over you. You made your back like the ground, and like a street for those who walk on it.
For we have sunk down to the dust; our bodies cling to the ground.
Her uncleanness [stains] her skirts. She never considered her end. Her downfall was astonishing; there was no one to comfort her. LORD, look on my affliction, for the enemy triumphs!
When they say to you, "Consult the spirits of the dead and the spiritists who chirp and mutter," shouldn't a people consult their God? [Should they consult] the dead on behalf of the living?
