Next, a word for the rich: weep and wail over the hardships coming upon you!
Your riches have rotted, and your clothes have become moth-eaten;
your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat up your flesh like fire! This is the acharit-hayamim, and you have been storing up wealth!
Listen! The wages you have fraudulently withheld from the workers who mowed your fields are calling out against you, and the outcries of those who harvested have reached the ears of ADONAI-Tzva'ot.
You have led a life of luxury and self-indulgence here on earth - in a time of slaughter, you have gone on eating to your heart's content.
You have condemned, you have murdered the innocent; they have not withstood you.
