O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk 5 in the light of the Lord. For thou hast for- 6 saken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be filled with customs from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they strike hands with the children of strangers. Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither 7 is there any end of their treasures; their land also is full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots.

Moreover the Lord said, Because the t6 daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: therefore the Lord will smite 17 with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will lay bare their secret parts.
