9 The voice of the LORD will call to the city - And it is sound wisdom to fear Your name: "Hear, O tribe. Who has appointed its time?
10 "Is there yet a man in the wicked house, Along with treasures of 1wickedness And a 2short measure that is cursed?
11 "Can I justify wicked 3scales And a bag of deceptive weights?
12 "For the rich men of the city are full of 4violence, Her residents speak 5lies, And their 6tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
13 "So also I will make you 7sick, striking you down, 8Desolating you because of your sins.
14 "You will eat, but you will 9not be satisfied, And your vileness will be in your midst. You will try to remove for safekeeping, But you will 10not preserve anything, And what you do preserve I will give to the sword.
15 "You will sow but you will 11not reap. You will tread the olive but will not anoint yourself with oil; And the grapes, but you will 12not drink wine.
16 "The statutes of 13Omri And all the works of the house of 14Ahab are observed; And in their devices you 15walk. Therefore I will give you up for 16destruction And your inhabitants for 17derision, And you will bear the 18reproach of My people."
