Woe to Oppressors1 Woe to those who a scheme iniquity,
Who work out evil on their beds!
▼ Lit In the light of the morning, c When morning comes, they do it,
For it is in the d power of their hands.
2 They e covet fields and then f seize them,
And houses, and take them away.
▼ Lit oppress, h rob a man and his house,
A man and his inheritance.
3 Therefore thus says the Lord, “Behold, I am i planning against this j family a calamity
From which you k cannot remove your necks;
And you will not walk l haughtily,
For it will be an m evil time.
4 “On that day they will n take up against you a ▼
▼ Or proverbtaunt
▼ Lit lament, q utter a bitter lamentation and say,
‘We are completely r destroyed!
He exchanges the portion of my people;
How He removes it from me!
To the apostate He s apportions our fields.’
5 “Therefore you will have no one ▼
▼ Lit casting, u stretching a measuring line
For you by lot in the assembly of the Lord.
6 ‘ v Do not ▼ speak out,’ so they ▼ speak out.
But if ▼
▼ I.e. God’s prophetsthey do z not ▼ speak out concerning these things,
ab Reproaches will not be turned back.
7 “Is it being said, O house of Jacob:
‘Is the Spirit of the Lord ac impatient?

From those returned from war.
9 “The women of My people you ak evict,
Each one from her pleasant house.
From her children you take My al splendor forever.
10 “Arise and go,
For this is no place am of rest
Because of the an uncleanness that brings on destruction,
A painful destruction.
11 “If a man walking after wind and ao falsehood
Had told lies and said,
‘I will ▼ speak out to you concerning aq wine and liquor,’
He would be ▼
▼ Lit one who flows oraclesspokesman to as this people.
12 “I will surely at assemble all of you, Jacob,
I will surely gather the au remnant of Israel.
I will put them together like sheep in the fold;
Like a flock in the midst of its pasture
They will be noisy with men.
13 “The breaker goes up before them;
They break out, pass through the gate and go out by it.
So their king goes on before them,
And the Lord at their head.”
