26 ‘For wicked men are found among My people,

They awatch like fowlers 1lying in wait;

They set a trap,

They catch men.

27 ‘Like a cage full of birds,

So their houses are full of adeceit;

Therefore they have become great and rich.

28 ‘They are afat, they are sleek,

They also 1excel in deeds of wickedness;

They do not plead the cause,

The cause of the 2borphan, that they may prosper;

And they do not 3defend the rights of the poor.

29 ‘aShall I not punish 1these people?’ declares the Lord,

‘On a nation such as this

Shall I not avenge Myself?’
