4 Hear the word of the Lord,
You children of Israel,
“There is no truth or mercy
Or bknowledge of God in the land.
Killing and stealing and committing adultery,
They break all restraint,
With bloodshed 2upon bloodshed.
3 Therefore cthe land will mourn;
And deveryone who dwells there will waste away
With the beasts of the field
And the birds of the air;
Even the fish of the sea will be taken away.
