9 The voice of the Lord cries to the city—
and it is sound wisdom to fear hyour name:
10 Can I forget any longer the treasures4 of wickedness in the house of the wicked,
and the scant measure that is accursed?
11 Shall I acquit the man jwith wicked scales
and with a bag of deceitful weights?
your inhabitants lspeak lies,
and mtheir tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
nmaking you desolate because of your sins.
14 oYou shall eat, but not be satisfied,
and there shall be hunger within you;
you shall put away, but not preserve,
and what you preserve I will give to the sword.
15 pYou shall sow, but not reap;
you shall tread olives, but not anoint yourselves with oil;
you shall tread grapes, but not drink wine.
and all the works of the house of rAhab;
and you have walked in their counsels,
so you shall bear tthe scorn of my people.”
