“And I will giue children to bee their Princes, and babes shall rule ouer them.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. For behold, the Lord, the Lord of hostes doeth take away from Ierusalem, and from Iudah, the stay and the staffe, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water, 2. The mighty man, and the man of warre; the Iudge and the Prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, 3. The captaine of fiftie, and the honourable man, and the counseller, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent oratour. 4. And I will giue children to bee their Princes, and babes shall rule ouer them. 5. And the people shall be oppressed, euery one by another, and euery one by his neighbour: the childe shall behaue himselfe proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable. 6. When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruine bee vnder thy hand: 7. In that day shall he sweare, saying, I will not be an healer: for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.
