Tree of Life Version
16 He pled the case of the poor and weak,
so it went well.
Is not this knowledge of Me?”
It is a declaration of Adonai.
17 “But your eyes and your heart
are only on your unjust gain,
and on shedding innocent blood,
and committing extortion and fraud.”
18 Therefore thus says Adonai about Jehoiakim son of King Josiah of Judah:
“They will not lament for him,
‘Oy, my brother!’ or ‘Oy, sister!’
They will not lament for him,
‘Oy, master!’ or ‘Oy, his majesty!’
