  • O house of David, thus says the LORD: Execute judgment in the morning, and deliver him that is spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor, lest my fury go out like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, cries out: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, says the LORD. Which imagine mischiefs in their heart: continually are they gathered together for war. Why do you say, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel: My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God? Hear ye the word of the LORD, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel: You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.
