10:1 Hear [H8085] ye the word [H1697] which the LORD [H3068] speaketh [H1696] unto you, O house [H1004] of Israel [H3478] :
10:2 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Learn [H3925] not the way [H1870] of the heathen [H1471] , and be not dismayed [H2865] at the signs [H226] of heaven [H8064] ; for the heathen [H1471] are dismayed [H2865] at them [H1992] .
10:3 For the customs [H2708] of the people [H5971] [are] vain [H1892] : for [one] cutteth [H3772] a tree [H6086] out of the forest [H3293] , the work [H4639] of the hands [H3027] of the workman [H2796] , with the axe [H4621] .(customs: Heb. statutes, or, ordinances are vanity)
10:4 They deck [H3302] it with silver [H3701] and with gold [H2091] ; they fasten [H2388] it with nails [H4548] and with hammers [H4717] , that it move [H6328] not.
10:5 They [are] upright [H4749] as the palm tree [H8560] , but speak [H1696] not: they must needs [H5375] be borne [H5375] , because they cannot go [H6805] . Be not afraid [H3372] of them; for they cannot do evil [H7489] , neither also [is it] in them to do good [H3190] .
10:6 Forasmuch as [there is] none like unto thee, O LORD [H3068] ; thou [art] great [H1419] , and thy name [H8034] [is] great [H1419] in might [H1369] .
10:7 Who would not fear [H3372] thee, O King [H4428] of nations [H1471] ? for to thee doth it appertain [H2969] : forasmuch as among all the wise [H2450] [men] of the nations [H1471] , and in all their kingdoms [H4438] , [there is] none like unto thee.(to: or, it liketh thee)
10:8 But they are altogether [H259] brutish [H1197] and foolish [H3688] : the stock [H6086] [is] a doctrine [H4148] of vanities [H1892] .(altogether: Heb. in one, or, at once)
10:9 Silver [H3701] spread into plates [H7554] is brought [H935] from Tarshish [H8659] , and gold [H2091] from Uphaz [H210] , the work [H4639] of the workman [H2796] , and of the hands [H3027] of the founder [H6884] : blue [H8504] and purple [H713] [is] their clothing [H3830] : they [are] all the work [H4639] of cunning [H2450] [men].
10:10 But the LORD [H3068] [is] the true [H571] God [H430] , he [is] the living [H2416] God [H430] , and an everlasting [H5769] king [H4428] : at his wrath [H7110] the earth [H776] shall tremble [H7493] , and the nations [H1471] shall not be able to abide [H3557] his indignation [H2195] .(true: Heb. God of truth)(everlasting: Heb. king of eternity)
10:11 Thus [H1836] shall ye say [H560] unto them, The gods [H426] that have not [H3809] made [H5648] the heavens [H8065] and the earth [H778] , [even] they shall perish [H7] from the earth [H772] , and from under [H8460] these [H429] heavens [H8065] .
10:12 He hath made [H6213] the earth [H776] by his power [H3581] , he hath established [H3559] the world [H8398] by his wisdom [H2451] , and hath stretched out [H5186] the heavens [H8064] by his discretion [H8394] .
10:13 When he uttereth [H5414] his voice [H6963] , [there is] a multitude [H1995] of waters [H4325] in the heavens [H8064] , and he causeth the vapours [H5387] to ascend [H5927] from the ends [H7097] of the earth [H776] ; he maketh [H6213] lightnings [H1300] with rain [H4306] , and bringeth forth [H3318] the wind [H7307] out of his treasures [H214] .(multitude: or, noise)(with: or, for)
10:14 Every man [H120] is brutish [H1197] in [his] knowledge [H1847] : every founder [H6884] is confounded [H3001] by the graven image [H6459] : for his molten image [H5262] [is] falsehood [H8267] , and [there is] no breath [H7307] in them.(brutish in his knowledge: or, more brutish than to know)
10:15 They [are] vanity [H1892] , [and] the work [H4639] of errors [H8595] : in the time [H6256] of their visitation [H6486] they shall perish [H6] .
10:16 The portion [H2506] of Jacob [H3290] [is] not like them: for he [is] the former [H3335] of all [things]; and Israel [H3478] [is] the rod [H7626] of his inheritance [H5159] : The LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] [is] his name [H8034] .
10:17 Gather up [H622] thy wares [H3666] out of the land [H776] , O inhabitant [H3427] of the fortress [H4692] .(inhabitant: Heb. inhabitress)
10:18 For thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Behold, I will sling [H7049] out the inhabitants [H3427] of the land [H776] at this once [H6471] , and will distress [H6887] them, that they may find [H4672] [it so].
10:19 Woe [H188] is me for my hurt [H7667] ! my wound [H4347] is grievous [H2470] : but I said [H559] , Truly [H389] this [is] a grief [H2483] , and I must bear [H5375] it.
10:20 My tabernacle [H168] is spoiled [H7703] , and all my cords [H4340] are broken [H5423] : my children [H1121] are gone forth [H3318] of me, and they [are] not: [there is] none to stretch forth [H5186] my tent [H168] any more, and to set up [H6965] my curtains [H3407] .
10:21 For the pastors [H7462] are become brutish [H1197] , and have not sought [H1875] the LORD [H3068] : therefore they shall not prosper [H7919] , and all their flocks [H4830] shall be scattered [H6327] .
10:22 Behold, the noise [H6963] of the bruit [H8052] is come [H935] , and a great [H1419] commotion [H7494] out of the north [H6828] country [H776] , to make [H7760] the cities [H5892] of Judah [H3063] desolate [H8077] , [and] a den [H4583] of dragons [H8577] .
10:23 O LORD [H3068] , I know [H3045] that the way [H1870] of man [H120] [is] not in himself: [it is] not in man [H376] that walketh [H1980] to direct [H3559] his steps [H6806] .
10:24 O LORD [H3068] , correct [H3256] me, but with judgment [H4941] ; not in thine anger [H639] , lest thou bring me to nothing [H4591] .(bring: Heb. diminish me)
10:25 Pour out [H8210] thy fury [H2534] upon the heathen [H1471] that know [H3045] thee not, and upon the families [H4940] that call [H7121] not on thy name [H8034] : for they have eaten up [H398] Jacob [H3290] , and devoured [H398] him, and consumed [H3615] him, and have made his habitation [H5116] desolate [H8074] .
