English Standard Version
13 (A)“Woe to him who builds his house by (B)unrighteousness,
and his upper rooms by injustice,
(C)who makes his neighbor serve him for nothing
and does not give him his wages,
14 who says, ‘I will build myself a great house
with spacious upper rooms,’
who cuts out windows for it,
paneling it with cedar
and (D)painting it with vermilion.
15 Do you think you are a king
because you compete in cedar?
Did not your father eat and drink
and (E)do justice and righteousness?
(F)Then it was well with him.
16 (G)He judged the cause of the poor and needy;
(H)then it was well.
Is not this (I)to know me?
declares the Lord.
17 But you have eyes and heart
only for your dishonest gain,
(J)for shedding innocent blood,
and for practicing oppression and violence.”
