Woe to Evildoers
Woe to the Oppressor of the Poor

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:1 - Woe to those who devise iniquity,
And work out evil on their beds!
At morning light they practice it,
Because it is in the power of their hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:2 - They covet fields and take them by violence,
Also houses, and seize them.
So they oppress a man and his house,
A man and his inheritance.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:3 - Therefore thus says the LORD:

“Behold, against this family I am devising disaster,
From which you cannot remove your necks;
Nor shall you walk haughtily,
For this is an evil time.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:4 - In that day one shall take up a proverb against you,
And lament with a bitter lamentation, saying:
‘We are utterly destroyed!
He has changed the heritage of my people;
How He has removed it from me!
To a turncoat He has divided our fields.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:5 - Therefore you will have no one to determine boundaries[fn] by lot
In the assembly of the LORD.
Lying Prophets

So they shall not prophesy to you;[fn]
They shall not return insult for insult.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:7 - You who are named the house of Jacob:
“Is the Spirit of the LORD restricted?
Are these His doings?
Do not My words do good
To him who walks uprightly?

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:8 - “Lately My people have risen up as an enemy—
You pull off the robe with the garment
From those who trust you, as they pass by,
Like men returned from war.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:9 - The women of My people you cast out
From their pleasant houses;
From their children
You have taken away My glory forever.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:10 - “Arise and depart,
For this is not your rest;
Because it is defiled, it shall destroy,
Yes, with utter destruction.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:11 - If a man should walk in a false spirit
And speak a lie, saying,
‘I will prophesy to you of wine and drink,’
Even he would be the prattler of this people.
Israel Restored

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:12 - “I will surely assemble all of you, O Jacob,
I will surely gather the remnant of Israel;
I will put them together like sheep of the fold,[fn]
Like a flock in the midst of their pasture;
They shall make a loud noise because of so many people.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 2:13 - The one who breaks open will come up before them;
They will break out,
Pass through the gate,
And go out by it;
Their king will pass before them,
With the LORD at their head.”
