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.
