Warning to Rich Oppressors

1 Now listen,1 you rich people,2 weep and wail3 because of the misery that is coming on you. 2 Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes.4 3 Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days.5 4 Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers6 who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries7 of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty.8 5 You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves9 in the day of slaughter.a10 6 You have condemned and murdered11 the innocent one,12 who was not opposing you.
