“Will a lyon roare in the forrest, when he hath no pray? will a young lyon cry out of his den, if he haue taken nothing?”
King James Version (KJV)
1. Heare this word that the Lord hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family, which I brought vp from the land of Egypt, saying; 2. You onely haue I knowen of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. 3. Can two walke together, except they be agreed? 4. Will a lyon roare in the forrest, when he hath no pray? will a young lyon cry out of his den, if he haue taken nothing? 5. Can a bird fall in a snare vpon the earth, where no ginne is for him? shall one take vp a snare from the earth, and haue taken nothing at all? 6. Shall a trumpet be blowen in the citie, and the people not be afraid? shall there be euill in a citie, and the Lord hath not done it? 7. Surely the Lord God will doe nothing, but he reuealeth his secret vnto his seruants the Prophets.
