3

O you that put far away the evil day,

and bring near a reign of violence?

 

4

Alas for those who lie on beds of ivory,

and lounge on their couches,

and eat lambs from the flock,

and calves from the stall;

5

who sing idle songs to the sound of the harp,

and like David improvise on instruments of music;

6

who drink wine from bowls,

and anoint themselves with the finest oils,

but are not grieved over the ruin of Joseph!

7

Therefore they shall now be the first to go into exile,

and the revelry of the loungers shall pass away.
