New American Bible (Revised Edition)
14 Therefore you must give back the dowry
The houses of Achzib[a] are a dry stream bed
to the kings of Israel.
15 Again I will bring the conqueror to you,
inhabitants of Mareshah;
The glory of Israel shall come
even to Adullam.
16 Make yourself bald, cut off your hair,
for the children whom you cherish;
Make yourself bald as a vulture,
for they are taken from you into exile.[b]
