Though he heaps up silver as the dust and prepares raiment as the clay, he may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver.

Surely man walks in darkness; surely they are disquieted in vain; they heap up riches not knowing who shall gather them.

For God gives to the man that is good in his sight wisdom and knowledge and joy, but to the sinner he gives travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to the one that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.

with thy wisdom and with thine intelligence thou hast gotten thee riches and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:



Your gold and silver is corrupted with rust; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you and shall completely eat your flesh, as fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.


Though he heaps up silver as the dust and prepares raiment as the clay,


Surely man walks in darkness; surely they are disquieted in vain; they heap up riches not knowing who shall gather them.

The light of the wicked shall certainly be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine. The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his lamp shall be put out with him. The steps of his strength shall be cut down, and his own counsel shall cast him down. read more.
For a net shall be cast at his feet, and he shall walk upon a network. The snare shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him. The cord is hidden in the ground and a trap for him in the way. Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and his own feet shall drive him away. His strength shall be hungerbitten, and destruction shall be ready at his side. They shall devour the protection of his skin; the firstborn of death shall devour his members. His confidence shall be rooted out of his tent, and he shall be brought to the king of terrors. He shall dwell in his tent, as if it were not his; brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation. His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above his branch shall be cut off. His memory shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the streets. He shall be driven from the light into the darkness and chased out of the world. He shall have neither son nor grandson among his people, nor any to succeed him in his dwellings. Those that come after him shall be dismayed at his day, as those that went before were overcome with fear. Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that does not know God.

Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withheld good things from you.

This is the portion of a wicked man with God and the heritage of the violent, which they shall receive of the Almighty. If their sons are multiplied, it is for the sword; and his offspring shall not be satisfied with bread. Those that remain of him shall be buried in death; and their widows shall not weep. read more.
Though he heaps up silver as the dust and prepares raiment as the clay, he may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver. He built his house as a moth and as a booth that the keeper makes. The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered; he shall open his eyes and not see anyone. Terrors shall take hold on him as waters; a whirlwind shall carry him away in the night. The east wind shall take him away, and he shall depart; the storm shall catch him up out of his place. For God shall cast down on him and not spare; he would attempt to flee out of his hand. Men shall clap their hands at him, and from his place they shall hiss at him.

The wicked man travails with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden from the violent. Fearful sounds are in his ears; in peace the destroyer shall come upon him. He will not believe that he shall return out of darkness, and he is always watching the sword. read more.
He wanders abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? He knows that the day of darkness is prepared for him. Tribulation and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle. Because he extended his hand against God and strengthens himself against the Almighty, he shall run him through in the neck, upon the thick shoulder pieces of his shields; for he covered his face with his fatness and made collops of fat on his flanks; and he dwelt in desolate cities and in houses which no one inhabited, which were in heaps. He shall not become rich, nor shall his strength be established, neither shall he extend his beauty upon the earth. He shall not escape from the darkness; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth he shall perish. He shall not be established; in vanity he shall err; therefore, he shall be changed into vanity. He shall be cut off before his time, and his branch shall not be green. He shall shake off his sour grapes as the vine and shall cast off his flower as the olive. For the congregation of the hypocrites shall be made desolate, and fire shall consume the tents of bribery. They conceive pain and bring forth iniquity, and their belly meditates deceit.

that the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment? Though his excellency mounts up to the heavens, and his head reaches unto the clouds, yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung; those who have seen him shall say, What is become of him? read more.
He shall fly away as a dream and shall not be found: yea, he shall flee away as a vision of the night. The eye which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place behold him any more. His poor sons shall go forth begging, and their hands shall restore that which he stole. His bones are full of the sins of his youth, which shall be buried with him in the dust. If wickedness was sweet in his mouth, if he hid it under his tongue, if it seemed good unto him, and he did not forsake it, but savored it within his mouth, his food shall be changed in his bowels, it shall be the gall of asps within him. He has swallowed down riches, but he shall vomit them up again; God shall cast them out of his belly. He shall suck the poison of asps; the viper's tongue shall slay him. He shall not see the rivers, the floods, the brooks of honey and butter. He shall restore the work that was not his; according to the substance that he took; neither shall he devour, nor rejoice. Because he oppressed and forsook the poor; because he has violently taken away houses which he did not build, therefore, he shall not feel quietness in his belly; he shall not escape with that which he desired. Nothing is left that he did not eat; therefore, his goods shall not last. In the fullness of his sufficiency, he shall come into anguish; the hands of all the wicked shall come upon him. When he is about to fill his belly, God shall cast the fury of his wrath upon him and shall rain it upon him and upon his food. He shall flee from the weapons of iron, and the bow of bronze shall strike him through. He shall draw forth an arrow from his quiver, and like lightning it shall strike through his gall; terrors shall come upon him. All darkness is kept for his secrets; a fire not blown shall consume him; his successor shall be broken in his tent. The heavens shall reveal his iniquity; and the earth shall rise up against him. The increase of his house shall be taken captive; they shall be scattered in the day of his wrath. This is the portion of a wicked man from God and the heritage that God appoints unto him by his word.

Why do the wicked live and become old and even increase in riches? Their seed is with them, established in their sight, and their offspring before their eyes. Their houses are safe from fear; neither is the rod of God upon them. read more.
Their cows conceive, and do not abort; their cows calve and do not cast forth their young. They send forth their little ones like a flock of sheep, and their children dance. They jump at the sound of the timbrel and harp and rejoice at the sound of the organ. They spend their days in pleasure and in a moment go down to Sheol. Therefore, they say unto God, Depart from us; for we do not desire the knowledge of thy ways. Who is the Almighty that we should serve him? And what profit should we have if we pray unto him? Behold that their good is not in their hands; the counsel of the wicked is far from me. How often is the lamp of the wicked put out and their destruction comes upon them, and God distributes sorrows upon them in his anger. They shall be as stubble before the wind and as chaff taken up by the whirlwind. God shall lay up his violence for their sons; and he will reward him so that he shall know it. His eyes shall see his destruction, and he shall drink of the wrath of the Almighty. For what delight shall he have in his house after him, being cut off in the number of his months? Shall he teach God knowledge, seeing he judges those that are high? This one shall die in the full strength of his beauty, being completely at ease and quiet. His breasts are full of milk, and his bones are moistened with marrow. And another dies in the bitterness of his soul, never having eaten with pleasure. They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall cover them. Behold, I know your thoughts and the imaginations which ye devise against me. For ye say, What is of the house of the prince, and what of the tent of the habitation of the wicked? Have ye not asked those that go by the way, and do ye not know their tokens? That the wicked is reserved for the day of destruction, they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath. Who shall declare his way to his face? And who shall repay him what he has done? He shall yet be brought to the grave and shall remain in the tomb. The clods of the river valley shall be sweet unto him, and every man shall be drawn after him, as there were innumerable before him.

Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks and feed thereof. They drive away the ass of the fatherless; they take the widow's ox for a pledge. They turn the needy out of the way; and all the poor of the earth hide themselves from them. read more.
Behold, as wild asses in the desert, they go forth to their work, rising early for a prey; the wilderness yields food for them and for their children. In the field they reap their fodder, and the wicked gather the vintage that is not theirs. They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold. They are wet with the floods of the mountains and embrace the rock for want of a covering. They pluck the fatherless from the breast and take a pledge of the poor. They cause the naked to go without clothing, and they take away the sheaves from the hungry. They press oil within their walls and tread their winepresses and suffer thirst. Men groan from out of the city, and the souls of the dead cry out; yet God did not hinder them. They are among those that rebel against the light; they have never known its ways nor abided in its paths. The murderer rises with the light, kills the poor and the needy, and in the night is as a thief. The eye of the adulterer waits for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me; and disguises his face. In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime; they do not know the light. For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death; if they are known, the terrors of the shadow of death come over them. They are swift upon the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth; they never come by the way of the vineyards. Drought and heat consume the snow waters; so does Sheol consume those who have sinned. The Merciful One shall forget them; the worm shall feed sweetly on them; they shall never be remembered again; and iniquity shall be broken as a tree. He afflicted the barren woman that did not conceive and never did good unto the widow. He furthered the violent with his power; he did not lend to anyone in his life. If he gave credit to some to take them over, his eyes were upon their ways. They were exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all others and cut off as the tops of the heads of grain.

Ye shall fall by the sword; I will judge you in the border of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

and say unto the people of the land, Thus hath the Lord GOD said regarding the inhabitants of Jerusalem and the land of Israel. They shall eat their bread with anxiety and drink their water with terror that her land may be desolate from all that is in it because of the violence of all those that dwell therein. And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be desolate; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

And it shall be that whoever will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of the hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt does not go up and does not come, there shall be no rain upon them; instead there shall be the plague, with which the LORD will smite the Gentiles that do not come up to celebrate the feast of the tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of the sin of Egypt and of the sin of all the Gentiles that do not come up to celebrate the feast of the tabernacles.
