Isn't your wickedness abundant and aren't your iniquities endless?
For you took collateral from your brothers without cause, stripping off their clothes and leaving them naked.
You gave no water to the thirsty and withheld food from the famished,
while the land belonged to a powerful man and an influential man lived on it.
You sent widows away empty-handed, and the strength of the fatherless was crushed.
Therefore snares surround you, and sudden dread terrifies you,
or darkness, so you cannot see, and a flood of water covers you.
Isn't God as high as the heavens? And look at the highest stars-- how lofty they are!
Yet you say: "What does God know? Can He judge through thick darkness?
Clouds veil Him so that He cannot see, as He walks on the circle of the sky."
Will you continue on the ancient path that wicked men have walked?
They were snatched away before their time, and their foundations were washed away by a river.
