For those who turn1justice into wormwood And acastrighteousnessdown to the earth."
He who made the 2Pleiades and Orion And 3changesdeepdarkness into morning, bWho also 4darkensday into night, Who 5calls for the waters of the sea And pours them out on the surface of the earth, The 6LORD is His name.
It is He who 7flashesforth with destruction upon the strong, So that 8destructioncomes upon the fortress.
They hate him who 9reproves in the cgate, And they 10abhor him who speaks with integrity.
11Thereforebecause you dimposeheavyrent on the poor And exact a tribute of grain from them, Though you have built11houses of well-hewnstone, Yet you will not live in them; You have plantedpleasantvineyards, yet you will 12not drink their wine.
For I know your transgressions are many and your sins are great, You who 13distress the righteous and acceptbribes And eturnaside the poor in the fgate.
13Therefore at gsuch a time the prudent person 14keepssilent, for it is an eviltime.
