22 But this is a people plundered and pillaged;
All of them are (A)trapped in [a]caves,
Or are (B)hidden away in prisons;
They have become plunder, with no one to save them,
And spoils with no one to say, “Give them back!”

23 Who among you will listen to this?
Who will pay attention and listen in the time to come?
24 Who gave Jacob up for spoils, and Israel to plunderers?
Was it not the Lord, against whom we have sinned,
And in whose ways they (C)were not willing to walk,
And whose Law they did not (D)obey?
