you hate the one who reproves in court1 and despise him who tells the truth.2
You trample on the poor3 and force him to give you grain. Therefore, though you have built stone mansions,4 you will not live in them;5 though you have planted lush vineyards, you will not drink their wine.6
For I know how many are your offenses and how great your sins.7 You oppress the righteous and take bribes8 and you deprive the poor9 of justice in the courts.10
