2 H3068 O Lord, H7768 how long shall I cry, H8085 and you will not hear! H2199 even cry out H2555 unto you of violence, H3467 and you will not save!
3 H7200 Why do you show H205 me iniquity, H5027 and cause me to behold H5999 grievance? H7701 for spoiling H2555 and violence H5375 are before me: and there are that raise up H7379 strife H4066 and contention.
4 H8451 Therefore the law H6313 is feeble, H4941 and judgment H5331 does never H3318 go forth: H7563 for the wicked H3803 do compass H6662 about the righteous; H6127 therefore wrong H4941 judgment H3318 proceeds.
5 H7200 Behold H1471 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, H5608 though it be told you.
6 H6965 For, behold, I raise up H3778 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 dwellingplaces that are not theirs.
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 H2555 all for violence: H6440 their faces H4041 shall sup up H6921 as the east wind, H622 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 unto them: they shall deride H4013 every strong hold; H6651 for they shall heap H6083 dust, H3920 and take it.
11 H7307 Then shall his mind H2498 change, H5674 and he shall pass over, H816 and offend, H2098 imputing this H3581 his power H433 unto his god.
12 H6924 Are you not from everlasting, H3068 O Lord H430 my God, H6918 my Holy One? H4191 we shall not die. H3068 O Lord, H7760 you have ordained H4941 them for judgment; H6697 and, O mighty 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 H5999 on iniquity: H5027 therefore look H898 you upon them that deal treacherously, H2790 and hold 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 fish H3220 of the sea, H7431 as the creeping things, H4910 that have no ruler over them?
15 H5927 They take up H2443 all of them with the hook, H1641 they catch H2764 them in their trap, H622 and gather H4365 them in their dragnet: H8055 therefore they rejoice H1523 and are glad.
16 H2076 Therefore they sacrifice H2764 unto their trap, H6999 and burn incense H4365 unto their dragnet; H1992 because by them H2506 their portion H8082 is fat, H3978 and their food H1277 plentiful.
