Judgment on the Earth
1 Behold, the Lord alays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants.
2 And the people will be like the priest, the servant like his master, the maid like her mistress, the buyer like the seller, the lender like the borrower, the acreditor like the debtor.
3 The earth will be completely laid waste and completely despoiled, for the Lord has spoken this word.
4 The aearth mourns and withers, the world fades and withers, the bexalted of the people of the earth fade away.
5 The earth is also apolluted 1by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, bbroke the everlasting covenant.
6 Therefore, a acurse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty. Therefore, the binhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left.
