Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:1 - Woe to those who decree iniquitous decrees,
and the writers who keep writing oppression,
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 10:2 - to turn aside the needy from justice
and to rob the poor of my people of their right,
that widows may be their spoil,
and that they may make the fatherless their prey!

in the ruin that will come from afar?
To whom will you flee for help,
and where will you leave your wealth?

or fall among the slain.
For all this his anger has not turned away,
and his hand is stretched out still.

the wealth of the peoples;

or the saw magnify itself against him who wields it?
As if a rod should wield him who lifts it,
or as if a staff should lift him who is not wood!
