1Woe to those who 1schemeiniquity, Who work out evil on their beds! a2When morning comes, they do it, For it is in the 3power of their hands.
They 4covetfields and then 5seize them, And houses, and take them away. They b6rob a man and his house, A man and his inheritance.
3Thereforethussays the LORD, "Behold, I am 7planningagainstthis8family a calamity From which you 9cannotremove your necks; And you will not walk10haughtily, For it will be an 11eviltime.
"On that day they will 12take up against you a ctaunt And d13utter a bitterlamentation and say, 'We are completely14destroyed! He exchanges the portion of my people; How He removes it from me! To the apostate He 15apportions our fields.'
5"Therefore you will haveno one e16stretching a measuringline For you by lot in the assembly of the LORD.
