Woe1 to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees,22
to deprive3 the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people,4 making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless.53
What will you do on the day of reckoning,6 when disaster7 comes from afar? To whom will you run for help?8 Where will you leave your riches?
Nothing will remain but to cringe among the captives9 or fall among the slain.10 Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away,11 his hand is still upraised.
