“Therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and taile, branch and rush in one day.”
King James Version (KJV)
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. 14. Therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and taile, branch and rush in one day. 15. The ancient and honourable, hee is the head: and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the taile. 16. For the leaders of this people cause them to erre, and they that are ledde of them, are destroyed. 17. Therfore the Lord shall haue no ioy in their yong men, neither shall haue mercy on their fatherlesse & widowes: for euery one is an hypocrite, and an euil doer, and euery mouth speaketh folly: for all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
