Jeremiah 22:13–17

13 “Woe oto him who builds his house by unrighteousness

And his 4chambers by injustice,

pWho uses his neighbor’s service without wages

And gives him nothing for his work,

14 Who says, ‘I will build myself a wide house with spacious 5chambers,

And cut out windows for it,

Paneling it with cedar

And painting it with vermilion.’

15 “Shall you reign because you enclose yourself in cedar?

Did not your father eat and drink,

And do justice and righteousness?

Then qit was well with him.

16 He 6judged the cause of the poor and needy;

Then it was well.

Was not this knowing Me?” says the Lord.

17 “Yet ryour eyes and your heart are for nothing but your covetousness,

For shedding innocent blood,

And practicing oppression and violence.”
