When the morning is light, they practise it,
Because bit is in the power of their hand.
2 And they covet cfields, and take them by violence;
And chouses, and take them away:
So they ||oppress a man and his house,
Even a man and his heritage.
fFrom which ye shall not remove your necks;
Neither shall ye go haughtily:
gFor this time is evil.
And lament †with a doleful lamentation,
And say, We be utterly spoiled:
kHe hath changed the portion of my people:
kHow hath he removed it from me!
In the congregation of the Lord.
pThey shall not prophesy to them, that they shall not take shame.
Is the spirit of the Lord ||straitened?
qAre these his doings?
Do not my words do good to him that walketh †uprightly?
sFrom them that pass by securely as men averse from war.
10 Arise ye, and depart; for this is not wyour rest:
I will dprophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink;
12 fI will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee;
I will put them together as the sheep of iBozrah,
13 mThe breaker is come up before them:
They have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it:
And ntheir king shall pass before them,
And othe Lord on the head of them.
