Woe To The Oppressors Of God's People

3 Therefore, - Thus, saith Yahweh, Behold me! devising, against this family, a calamity, - from which ye shall not remove your neck, neither shall ye walk loftily, for, a time of calamity, shall it be. 4 In that day, shall one take up against you a by-word, and lament a lamentable lamentation, saying - we are made, utterly desolate, the portion of my people, he passeth to others, - How doth he set me aside! To an apostate, our fields, doth he apportion. 5 Therefore, shalt thou have none to throw a measuring-line by lot, - in the convocation of Yahweh.
