Because of My people and My inheritance Israel,

And sold a girl for wine to drink.

To which you have sold them,
And will return your recompense upon your own head.

And be gathered.

In the valley of decision;
For the aday of Jehovah has drawn near
In the valley of decision.

And it will water the valley of Shittim.

And Jerusalem, from generation to generation;
