26 'For wicked men are found among My people, They 1watch like fowlers lying in wait; They set a trap, They catch men.
27 'Like a cage full of birds, So their houses are full of 2deceit; Therefore * they have become great and rich.
28 'They are 3fat, they are sleek, They also excel in deeds of wickedness; They do not plead the cause, The cause of the 4orphan, that they may prosper; And they do not defend the rights of the poor.
29 '5Shall I not punish these people?' declares the LORD, 'On a nation such as this Shall I not avenge Myself?'
