How long will you assail a man,
That you may murder him, all of you,
Like a leaning wall, like a tottering fence?
Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said to him, “Thus says the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, ‘How long will you refuse to humble yourself before Me? Let My people go, that they may serve Me.

O sons of men, how long will my honor become a reproach?
How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception? Selah.
Though they intended evil against You
And devised a plot,
They will not succeed.
Those who seek my life lay snares for me;
And those who seek to injure me have threatened destruction,
And they devise treachery all day long.
Surely You set them in slippery places;
You cast them down to destruction.
How long will you judge unjustly
And show partiality to the wicked? Selah.
Who devise evil things in their hearts;
They continually stir up wars.
“How long, O naive ones, will you love being simple-minded?
And scoffers delight themselves in scoffing
And fools hate knowledge?
How long will you lie down, O sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep?
Therefore this iniquity will be to you
Like a breach about to fall,
A bulge in a high wall,
Whose collapse comes suddenly in an instant,
Wash your heart from evil, O Jerusalem,
That you may be saved.
How long will your wicked thoughts
Lodge within you?
Although I trained and strengthened their arms,
Yet they devise evil against Me.
And Jesus answered and said, “You unbelieving and perverted generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him here to Me.”
