Yahweh Has An Indictment

2 Swearing, and lying, and murdering, And stealing, and committing adultery -- have increased, And blood against blood hath touched. 3 Therefore mourn doth the land, And weak is every dweller in it, With the beast of the field, And with the fowl of the heavens, And the fishes of the sea -- they are removed. 4 Only, let no one strive, nor reprove a man, And thy people are as those striving with a priest.
