Alas for those who devise wickedness  and evil deeds on their beds!When the morning dawns, they perform it,  because it is in their power.They covet fields, and seize them;  houses, and take them away;they oppress householder and house,  people and their inheritance.Therefore, thus says the Lord:Now, I am devising against this family an evil  from which you cannot remove your […]

Hear this, you that trample on the needy,   and bring to ruin the poor of the land,saying, “When will the new moon be over   so that we may sell grain;and the sabbath,   so that we may offer wheat for sale?We will make the ephah small and the shekel great,   and practice deceit with false balances,buying the poor for silver   and […]
