RighteousH6662 are you, O LORD,H3068 whenH3588 I pleadH7378 with you: yetH389 let me talkH1696 with you of your judgments:H4941 WhyH4069 does the wayH1870 of the wickedH7563 prosper?H6743 why are allH3605 they happyH7951 that deal veryH899 treacherously?H898
You have plantedH5193 them, yes,H1571 they have taken root:H8327 they grow,H3212 yes,H1571 they bringH6213 forthH6213 fruit:H6529 you are nearH7138 in their mouth,H6310 and farH7350 from their reins.H3629
But you, O LORD,H3068 knowH3045 me: you have seenH7200 me, and triedH974 my heartH3820 towardH854 you: pullH5423 them out like sheepH6629 for the slaughter,H2873 and prepareH6942 them for the dayH3117 of slaughter.H2028
HowH5704 longH5704 shall the landH776 mourn,H56 and the herbsH6212 of everyH3605 fieldH7704 wither,H3001 for the wickednessH7451 of them that dwellH3427 therein? the beastsH929 are consumed,H5595 and the birds;H5775 becauseH3588 they said,H559 He shall not seeH7200 our lastH319 end.
IfH3588 you have runH7323 with the footmen,H7273 and they have weariedH3811 you, then howH349 can you contendH8474 with horses?H5483 and if in the landH776 of peace,H7965 wherein you trusted,H982 they wearied you, then howH349 will you doH6213 in the swellingH1347 of Jordan?H3383
For evenH1571 your brothers,H251 and the houseH1004 of your father,H1 evenH1571 they have dealt treacherouslyH898 with you; yes,H1571 they have calledH7121 a multitudeH4392 afterH310 you: believeH539 them not, thoughH3588 they speakH1696 fairH2896 words to you.
I have forsakenH5800 my house,H1004 I have leftH5203 my heritage;H5159 I have givenH5414 the dearly belovedH3033 of my soulH5315 into the handH3709 of her enemies.H341
My heritageH5159 is to me as a lionH738 in the forest;H3293 it criesH5414 H6963 out againstH5921 me: thereforeH5921 H3651 have I hatedH8130 it.
My heritageH5159 is to me as a speckledH6641 bird,H5861 the birdsH5861 roundH5439 about are againstH5921 her; comeH3212 you, assembleH622 allH3605 the beastsH2416 of the field,H7704 comeH857 to devour.H402
ManyH7227 pastorsH7462 have destroyedH7843 my vineyard,H3754 they have troddenH947 my portionH2513 under foot,H947 they have madeH5414 my pleasantH2532 portionH2513 a desolateH8077 wilderness.H4057
They have madeH7760 it desolate,H8074 and being desolateH8077 it mournsH56 to me; the wholeH3605 landH776 is made desolate,H8074 becauseH3588 noH369 manH376 laysH7760 it to heart.H3820
The spoilersH7703 are comeH935 on allH3605 highH8205 places through the wilderness:H4057 for the swordH2719 of the LORDH3068 shall devourH398 from the one endH7097 of the landH776 even to the other endH7097 of the land:H776 noH369 fleshH1320 shall have peace.H7965
They have sownH2232 wheat,H2406 but shall reapH7114 thorns:H6975 they have put themselves to pain,H2470 but shall not profit:H3276 and they shall be ashamedH954 of your revenuesH8393 because of the fierceH2740 angerH639 of the LORD.H3068
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 againstH5921 allH3605 my evilH7451 neighbors,H7934 that touchH5060 the inheritanceH5159 whichH834 I have caused my peopleH5971 IsraelH3478 to inherit;H5157 Behold,H2005 I will pluckH5428 them out of their land,H127 and pluckH5428 out the houseH1004 of JudahH3063 from amongH8432 them.
And it shall comeH1961 to pass, afterH310 that I have pluckedH5428 them out I will return,H7725 and have compassionH7355 on them, and will bringH7725 them again,H7725 every manH376 to his heritage,H5159 and every manH376 to his land.H776
And it shall comeH1961 to pass, ifH518 they will diligently learnH3925 the waysH1870 of my people,H5971 to swearH7650 by my name,H8034 The LORDH3068 lives;H2416 as they taughtH3925 my peopleH5971 to swearH7650 by Baal;H1168 then shall they be builtH1129 in the middleH8432 of my people.H5971
But ifH518 they will not obey,H8085 I will utterly pluckH5428 up and destroyH6 that nation,H1471 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
