even when he fetters them, they do not cry for help.

they do not cry for help when he binds them.

they plot against those you cherish.
They lay crafty plans against your people;
they consult together against your treasured ones.

Prov 4:8

Cherish her, and she will exalt you;
embrace her, and she will honour you.
Prize her highly, and she will exalt you;
she will honor you if you embrace her.

Hos 4:10

‘They will eat but not have enough;
they will engage in prostitution but not flourish,
because they have deserted the Lord
to give themselves
They shall eat, but not be satisfied;
they shall play the whore, but not multiply,
because they have forsaken the Lord
to cherish
