“The brickes are fallen downe, but we will build with hewen stones: the Sycomores are cut downe, but we will change them into Cedars.”
King James Version (KJV)
7. Of the increase of his gouernment and peace there shall be no end, vpon the throne of Dauid & vpon his kingdome, to order it, and to stablish it with iudgement and with iustice, from henceforth euen for euer: the zeale of the Lord of hostes will performe this. 8. ¶ The Lord sent a word into Iacob, and it hath lighted vpon Israel. 9. And all the people shal know, euen Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutnesse of heart; 10. The brickes are fallen downe, but we will build with hewen stones: the Sycomores are cut downe, but we will change them into Cedars. 11. Therefore the Lord shall set vp the aduersaries of Rezin against him, and ioyne his enemies together. 12. The Syrians before, and the Philistines behinde, and they shall deuoure Israel with open mouth: for all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. 13. ¶ For the people turneth not vnto him that smiteth them, neither doe they seeke the Lord of hostes.
