View In My Bible
1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand. 2 And they covet fields, and take them by violence ; and houses, and take them away : so they oppressa a man and his house, even a man and his heritage. 3 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time is evil. 4 In that day shall one take up a parable against you, and lament with a dolefulb lamentation, and say , We be utterly spoiled : he hath changed the portion of my people: how hath he removed it from me! turning away he hath divided our fields. 5 Therefore thou shalt have none that shall cast a cord by lot in the congregation of the LORD. 6 Prophesy ye not, say they to them that prophesy : they shall not prophesy to them, that they shall not take shame. 7 O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the LORD straitened ? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly? 8 Even of latec my people is risen up as an enemy : ye pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely as men averse from war. 9 The womend of my people have ye cast out from their pleasant houses; from their children have ye taken away my glory for ever. 10 Arise ye, and depart ; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted , it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction. 11 If a man walkinge in the spirit and falsehood do lie , saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet of this people. 12 I will surely assemble , O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah , as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men. 13 The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up , and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them.
