O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of LORD.
And now cursed are thou from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand.
and do not cover their iniquity, and let not their sin be blotted out from before thee, for they have provoked [thee] to anger before the builders.
For, behold, LORD comes forth out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity. The earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
For her blood is in the midst of her. She set it upon the bare rock. She did not pour it upon the ground to cover it with dust.
Let my cry
Will God hear his cry when trouble comes upon him?
If I regard iniquity in my heart, LORD will not hear.
And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you. Yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear; your hands are full of blood.
Then thou shall call, and LORD will answer, thou shall cry, and he will say, Here I am. If thou take the yoke away from the midst of thee, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking wickedly,
Ye ask, and do not receive, because ye ask wrongly, so that ye may spend on your pleasures.
