Woe to those who are at ease in Zion
and to those who feel secure in the mountain of Samaria,
the notable men of the first of the nations
to whom the descendants of Israel come–
Pass over to Calneh, and see;
and thence go to Hamath the Great;
then go down to Gath of the Philistines.
Are they better than these kingdoms?
Or is your territory greater than their territory?
Oh you, who put far away the evil day,
and bring near the seat of violence!
