10

They hate the one who reproves in the gate,

and they abhor the one who speaks the truth.

11

Therefore because you trample on the poor

and take from them levies of grain,

you have built houses of hewn stone,

but you shall not live in them;

you have planted pleasant vineyards,

but you shall not drink their wine.

12

For I know how many are your transgressions,

and how great are your sins—

you who afflict the righteous, who take a bribe,

and push aside the needy in the gate.

13

Therefore the prudent will keep silent in such a time;

for it is an evil time.

 

14

Seek good and not evil,

that you may live;

and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you,

just as you have said.

15

Hate evil and love good,

and establish justice in the gate;

it may be that the Lord, the God of hosts,

will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.
