Is it for your piety that he reproves you,
    and enters into judgement with you?
Is not your wickedness great?
    There is no end to your iniquities.
For you have exacted pledges from your family for no reason,
    and stripped the naked of their clothing.
You have given no water to the weary to drink,
    and you have withheld bread from the hungry.
The powerful possess the land,
    and the favoured live in it.
You have sent widows away empty-handed,
    and the arms of the orphans you have crushed.[a]
