10 (A)They hate him who reproves (B)in the gate,
    and they (C)abhor him who speaks the truth.
11 Therefore because you (D)trample on[a] the poor
    and you exact taxes of grain from him,
(E)you have built houses of hewn stone,
    but you shall not dwell in them;
(F)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 (G)take a bribe,
    and (H)turn aside the needy (I)in the gate.
13 Therefore he who is prudent will (J)keep silent in such a time,
    (K)for it is an evil time.

14 (L)Seek good, and not evil,
    that you may live;
and so the Lord, (M)the God of hosts, will be with you,
    as you have said.
15 (N)Hate evil, and love good,
    and establish justice (O)in the gate;
(P)it may be that the Lord, the God of hosts,
    will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.
