This is what the LORD says: "For three sins of Israel, even for four, I will not turn back [my wrath].1 They sell the righteous for silver, and the needy for a pair of sandals.2
They trample on the heads of the poor as upon the dust of the ground and deny justice to the oppressed. Father and son use the same girl and so profane my holy name.3
They lie down beside every altar on garments taken in pledge.4 In the house of their god they drink wine5 taken as fines.6
