|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
8 Doom to you who buy up all the houses and grab all the land for yourselves - Evicting the old owners, posting no trespassing signs, Taking over the country, leaving everyone homeless and landless.
8 Woe to you who add house to house and join field to field till no space is left and you live alone in the land.
