Woe to Oppressors

1 Woe to those who 1scheme iniquity, Who work out evil on their beds! 2When morning comes, they do it, For it is in the 3power of their hands.
2 They 4covet fields and then 5seize them, And houses, and take them away. They 6rob a man and his house, A man and his inheritance.
3 Therefore thus says the LORD, "Behold, I am 7planning against this 8family a calamity From which you 9cannot remove your necks; And you will not walk 10haughtily, For it will be an 11evil time.
4 "On that day they will 12take up against you a taunt And 13utter a bitter lamentation and say, 'We are completely 14destroyed! He exchanges the portion of my people; How He removes it from me! To the apostate He 15apportions our fields.'
5 "Therefore you will have no one 16stretching a measuring line For you by lot in the assembly of the LORD.
