that executes judgment in the height , and he has established justice on the earth:
who makes all things, and changes , and turns darkness into the morning, and darkens the day into night: who calls for the water of the sea, and pours it out on the face of the earth: the Lord is his name:
who dispenses ruin to strength, and brings distress upon the fortress.
They hated him that reproved in the gates, and abhorred holy speech.
Therefore because they have smitten the poor with their fists, and ye have received of them choice gifts; ye have built polished houses, but ye shall not dwell in them; ye have planted desirable vineyards, but ye shall not drink the wine of them.
For I know your many transgressions, and your sins are great, trampling on the just, taking bribes, and turning aside the poor in the gates.
Therefore the prudent shall be silent at that time; for it is a time of evils.
