And they say - How doth GOD know? And is there knowledge in the Most High?
Wilt thou say then, What doth GOD know? Out through a thick cloud, can he judge?
He hath said in his heart, GOD hath forgotten, - He hath veiled his face, Oh he hath never seen!
Would not, God, have searched into this, Seeing that, he, knoweth the secrets of the heart?
They have set, in the heavens, their mouth, And, their tongue, marcheth through the earth.
Yet have they said - Yah, doth not see, The God of Jacob, doth not understand.
O Yahweh! thou hast searched me, and observed:
Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen Son of man what the elders of the house of Israel, are doing in the dark, every man in his image-chambers? for they are saying - Yahweh doth not see us! Yahweh hath forsaken the land!
And they say not to their own hearts, that, all their wickedness, I remember, now, have their doings, beset them about, right before my face, have they been done.
And it shall come to pass, at that time, that I will search through Jerusalem, with lamps, - and will punish the men who are thickened upon their lees, who are saying in their heart, Yahweh, will not give blessing, neither will he bring calamity.
