New International Version
5 Now this is what the Lord Almighty says: “Give careful thought(A) to your ways. 6 You have planted much, but harvested little.(B) You eat, but never have enough.(C) You drink, but never have your fill.(D) You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages,(E) only to put them in a purse with holes in it.”
7 This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Give careful thought(F) to your ways. 8 Go up into the mountains and bring down timber(G) and build my house, so that I may take pleasure(H) in it and be honored,(I)” says the Lord.
