see how they are rewarding us by coming to drive us out from Your possession which You have given us as an inheritance.
They make shrewd plans against Your people,
And conspire together against Your treasured ones.
They had just gone out of the city, and were not far off, when Joseph said to his house steward, “Up, follow the men; and when you overtake them, say to them, ‘Why have you repaid evil for good?
Since now the Lord, the God of Israel, drove out the Amorites from before His people Israel, are you then to possess it?
If I have rewarded evil to my friend,
Or have plundered him who without cause was my adversary,
They repay me evil for good,
To the bereavement of my soul.
He who returns evil for good,
Evil will not depart from his house.
Should good be repaid with evil?
For they have dug a pit for me.
Remember how I stood before You
To speak good on their behalf,
So as to turn away Your wrath from them.
