Shall not all these tttake up ua parable against him,

And va taunting vwproverb against him, and say,

||Woe to him that increaseth xthat which is not his! yhow long?

And to him that ladeth himself with thick clay!

Shall they not rise up zsuddenly that shall bite thee,

And awake that shall avex thee,

And thou shalt be bfor booties unto them?

cBecause thou hast spoiled many nations,

cAll the remnant of the people dshall spoil thee;

eBecause of men’s blood, and for fthe violence of the land,

eOf the city, and of all that dwell therein.

gWoe to him that ||coveteth an evil covetousness to his house,

That he may set hhis nest ion high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil!

10  Thou hast consulted shame to thy house

By cutting off many people,

And hast ksinned against thy soul.

11  For lthe stone shall cry out of the wall,

And the ||beam out of the timber shall ||answer it.

12  Woe to him mthat buildeth a town with blood,

And stablisheth a city mby iniquity!

13  Behold, is it not of the Lord of hosts

That nthe people shall labour oin the very fire,

And nthe people pshall weary themselves ||ofor very vanity?

14  For qrthe earth shall be filled ||with qthe knowledge of rthe glory of the Lord,

qAs the waters cover the sea.

15  Woe unto him sthat giveth his neighbour drink,

That tputtest thy ubottle to him, and vmakest him drunken also,

vThat thou mayest look on their nakedness!

16  Thou art filled ||with wshame for glory:

xDrink thou also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered:

xThe cup of the Lord’s right hand shall be turned unto thee,

And yshameful spewing shall be on thy glory.

17  For fthe violence of zLebanon shall cover thee,

And zzthe spoil of beasts, which made them afraid,

eBecause of men’s blood, and for fthe violence of the land,

eOf the city, and of all that dwell therein.
