Their own fat heart , have they shut up, - With their mouth, have they spoken proudly.
Gross, like fat, is their heart, I, in thy law, have found dear delight.
For he had covered his face with his fatness, and had gathered a superabundance on his loins;
The show of their face, hath answered against them, And their sin - like Sodom, have they told, they have not concealed it. Alas for their souls! For they have requited to themselves, calamity.
They have waxed fat, they shine Yea they have overpassed the records of wickedness. The right, have they not determined, the right of the fatherless that they might prosper, - Yea justice to the helpless, have they not decreed.
Lo! this became the iniquity of Sodom thy sister, - Pride, fulness of bread, and careless security came to her and to her daughters, And the hand of the oppressed and the needy, she strengthened not.
Lo! these, are the lawless, Who are secure for an age, They have attained unto wealth.
From men who are thy hand, O Yahweh, From the men of this age, whose portion, is among the living, and, with thy treasure, thou fillest their bosom, - They must be satisfied with sons, And must leave their abundance to their children: -
