New Century Version
God Will Punish Israel
8 The Lord sent a message against the people of Jacob;
it says that God will judge Israel.
9 Then everyone in Israel, even the leaders in Samaria,
will know that God has sent it.
Those people are proud and brag by saying,
10 “These bricks have fallen,
but we will build again with cut stones.
These small trees have been chopped down,
but we will put great cedars there.”
