2 Some remove the elandmarks;
They violently take away flocks, and ||feed thereof.
3 They fdrive away the ass of the fatherless,
They gtake the widow’s ox for a pledge.
4 They hturn the needy out of the way:
5 Behold, as mwild asses in the desert,
The wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children.
6 They reap every one his †corn in the field:
And †they gather the vintage of the wicked.
That they have no covering in the cold.
8 They qare wet with the showers of the mountains,
And rembrace the rock for want of a shelter.
And xthey take away the sheaf from the hungry;
11 xWhich make oil within their walls,
And ytread their winepresses, and suffer thirst.
12 Men zgroan from out of the city,
And the soul of the zwounded crieth out:
Yet God layeth not afolly to them.
13 They are of those bthat rebel against the light;
They know not the ways thereof,
Nor abide in the paths thereof.
Killeth the poor and needy,
And in the night is as a thief.
15 The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for cthe twilight,
dSaying, No eye shall see me:
And †disguiseth his face.
16 In the dark they dddig through houses,
Which they had marked for themselves in the daytime:
bThey know not the light.
If one know them, they are in the terrors of fthe shadow of death.
Their portion is cursed in the earth:
He beholdeth not the way of the vineyards.
So doth the grave those which have sinned.
He shall be no more remembered;
And wickedness shall be broken las a tree.
And doeth not good to the widow.
22 He draweth also the mmighty with his power:
He riseth up, and ||no man is sure of life.
Yet nhis eyes are upon their ways.
And brought low; they are †taken out of the way as all other,
25 rAnd if it be not so now, who will make me a liar,
And make my speech nothing worth?
