8 Woe to those who [a]join (A)house to house;
They add field to field,
Till there is no place
Where they may dwell alone in the midst of the land!

“Truly, many houses shall be desolate,
Great and beautiful ones, without inhabitant.

8 Woe to those who (A)join house to house,
who add field to field,
until there is no more room,
and you are made to dwell alone
in the midst of the land.

(B)“Surely many houses shall be desolate,
large and beautiful houses, without inhabitant.
