“Surely the Lord God will doe nothing, but he reuealeth his secret vnto his seruants the Prophets.”
King James Version (KJV)
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. 8. The lyon hath roared, Who will not feare? the Lord God hath spoken, Who can but prophecie? 9. ¶ Publish in the palaces at Ashdod, and in the palaces in the land of Egypt, and say; Assemble your selues vpon the mountaines of Samaria: and behold the great tumults in the midst thereof, and the oppressed in the midst thereof. 10. For they know not to doe right, saith the Lord; who store vp violence, and robberie in their palaces.
