2 H3068 O LORD, H5704 how H5704 long H7768 shall I cry, H8085 and you will not hear! H2199 even cry H2555 out to you of violence, H3467 and you will not save!
3 H4100 Why H7200 do you show H205 me iniquity, H5027 and cause me to behold H5999 grievance? H7701 for spoiling H2555 and violence H5048 are before H5375 me: and there are that raise H7379 up strife H4066 and contention.
4 H5921 Therefore H3651 H8451 the law H6313 is slacked, H4941 and judgment H3808 does never H5331 H3318 go H3318 forth: H7563 for the wicked H3803 does compass H6662 about the righteous; H5921 therefore H3651 H6127 wrong H4941 judgment H3318 proceeds.
5 H7200 Behold H1471 you among the heathen, H5027 and regard, H8539 and wonder H8539 marvelously: H6466 for I will work H6467 a work H3117 in your days H539 which you will not believe, H3588 though H5608 it be told you.
6 H2009 For, see, H6965 I raise H3778 up the Chaldeans, H4751 that bitter H4116 and hasty H1471 nation, H1980 which shall march H4800 through the breadth H776 of the land, H3423 to possess H4908 the dwelling places that are not their’s.
7 H366 They are terrible H3372 and dreadful: H4941 their judgment H7613 and their dignity H3318 shall proceed of themselves.
8 H5483 Their horses H7043 also are swifter H5246 than the leopards, H2300 and are more fierce H6153 than the evening H2061 wolves: H6571 and their horsemen H6335 shall spread H6571 themselves, and their horsemen H935 shall come H7350 from far; H5774 they shall fly H5404 as the eagle H2363 that hastens H398 to eat.
9 H935 They shall come H3605 all H2555 for violence: H6440 their faces H4041 shall sup H6921 up as the east H622 wind, and they shall gather H7628 the captivity H2344 as the sand.
10 H7046 And they shall scoff H4428 at the kings, H7336 and the princes H4890 shall be a scorn H7832 to them: they shall deride H3605 every H4013 strong H4013 hold; H6651 for they shall heap H6083 dust, H3920 and take it.
11 H227 Then H7307 shall his mind H2498 change, H5674 and he shall pass H5674 over, H816 and offend, H2098 imputing this H3581 his power H430 to his god.
12 H6924 Are you not from everlasting, H3068 O LORD H430 my God, H6918 my Holy H6918 One? H4191 we shall not die. H3068 O LORD, H7760 you have ordained H4941 them for judgment; H6697 and, O mighty H6697 God, H3245 you have established H3198 them for correction.
13 H2889 You are of purer H5869 eyes H7200 than to behold H7451 evil, H3201 and can H5027 not look H413 on H5999 iniquity: H4100 why H5027 look H898 you on them that deal treacherously, H2790 and hold H2790 your tongue H7563 when the wicked H1104 devours H6662 the man that is more righteous than he?
14 H6213 And make H120 men H1709 as the fishes H3220 of the sea, H7431 as the creeping H3808 things, that have no H4910 ruler over them?
15 H5927 They take H3605 up all H2443 of them with the angle, H1641 they catch H2764 them in their net, H622 and gather H4365 them in their drag: H5921 therefore H3651 H8055 they rejoice H1523 and are glad.
16 H5921 Therefore H3651 H2076 they sacrifice H2764 to their net, H6999 and burn H6999 incense H4365 to their drag; H3588 because H2506 by them their portion H8082 is fat, H3978 and their meat H1277 plenteous.
