Context Readings

A Message Concerning Jehoiakim

13 Alas! for him who buildeth his house without righteousness, And his roof-chambers without justice, - Of his neighbour, taketh service for nought, And recompense for his work, giveth him not. 14 Who saith - I will build me a roomy house, with spacious roof-chambers, - So he cutteth him open its windows, And it is covered in with cedar, And he painteth it with vermilion. 15 Shalt thou reign, because, thou, art eager to excel in cedar? Thy father, did lie not eat and drink, and do justice and righteousness, And, then, it was well with him?
