We've oppressed others and turned away from you. Our thoughts are false; our words are lies. Justice is driven away and right cannot come near. Truth stumbles in the public square, and honesty finds no place there. There is so little honesty that those who stop doing evil find themselves the victims of crime.
Instead, let justice flow like a stream and righteousness like a river that never runs dry!
These people fill their mansions with things taken by crime and violence. They don't even know how to be honest. When the Lord gives the command, houses large and small will be smashed to pieces. I will destroy winter houses and summer houses. The houses decorated with ivory will fall in ruins; every large house will be destroyed. You are doomed, you that twist justice and cheat people out of their rights!
The Lord says, I am the one who strengthens you. Why should you fear mortals, who are no more enduring than grass? Have you forgotten the Lord who made you, who stretched out the heavens and laid the earth's foundations? Why should you live in constant fear of the fury of those who oppress you, of those who are ready to destroy you? Their fury can no longer touch you. Those who are prisoners will soon be set free; they will live a long life and have all the food they need.
