Wo to those making deep to hide counsel from Jehovah, and their work was in darkness, and they will say, Who saw us? and who knew us?
Wo to sons turning aside, says Jehovah, to make counsel and not from me; and to cover a covering, and not my spirit so as to add sin upon sin:
And he said to me, Sawest, thou son of man, what the old men of the house of Israel are doing in darkness, a man in the chambers of his images? for they are saying, Jehovah sees us not; Jehovah forsook the earth.
Saying in his heart, God forgat: he hid his face; not seeing forever.
Because ye said, We cut out a covenant with death, and with hades we did this; when this overflowing scourge passed through it shall not come to us, for we set falsehood our refuge, and in ahewe hid ourselves.,
And thou wilt trust in thy wickedness: thou saidst, None saw me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge it caused thee to turn away; and thou wilt say in thy heart, I, and none yet besides me.
Ye wearied Jehovah with your words: and ye said, In what did we weary? In your saying, Every one doing evil is good in the eyes of Jehovah, and he delighted in them; or, Where the God of judgment?
And thou saidst How shall God know? Shall he judge in the cloud of darkness?
They were among the rebels of light; they knew not his ways, and they dwelt not in his beaten paths.
They will strengthen to themselves an evil word: they will recount to hide snares; they said, Who shall see them
And they will say Jah will not see, and the God of Jacob will not understand.
To the overseer, to David a chanting. O Jehovah thou didst search me, and thou wilt know.
Wo to those drawing iniquity with cords of evil, and sin as the cords of a wagon:
And I set judgment to the line and justice to the weight: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of falsehood, and the waters shall overflow the covering.
I will announce thy justice and thy works, and they shall not profit thee.
If a man shall hide in secret places and I shall not see him, says Jehovah. Do I not fill the heavens and the earth? says Jehovah.
And he will say to me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah, great exceedingly, and the land will be filled with blood and the city being filled with wresting: for they said, Jehovah forsook the land, and Jehovah saw not
And it was in that time, I will search out Jerusalem with lights, and I reviewed upon the men curdled upon their lees, saying in their heart, Jehovah will do good and not evil.
Upon which, myriads of the crowd having been gathered together, so as to tread upon one another, he began to speak to his disciples first, Keep yourselves from the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
And this is the judgment, that light has come into the world, and men rather loved darkness than light, for their works were evil.
Therefore judge ye nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who also, will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and make manifest the counsels of hearts: and then shall praise be to each from God.
But have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craft, neither adulterating the word of God; but by manifestation of the truth recommending ourselves to every consciousness of man before God.
