11 Therefore, because you trample on the poor(A)
and exact a grain tax from him,
you will never live in the houses of cut stone(B)
you have built;
you will never drink the wine
from the lush vineyards
you have planted.(C)
12 For I know your crimes are many
and your sins innumerable.
They oppress the righteous,(D) take a bribe,
and deprive the poor of justice(E) at the city gates.
13 Therefore, those who have insight will keep silent[a](F)
at such a time,
for the days are evil.
