The People Complain Harshly

13 “Your(A) words have been [a]harsh against Me,”
Says the Lord,
“Yet you say,
‘What have we spoken against You?’
14 (B)You have said,
‘It is useless to serve God;
What profit is it that we have kept His ordinance,
And that we have walked as mourners
Before the Lord of hosts?
15 So now (C)we call the proud blessed,
For those who do wickedness are [b]raised up;
They even (D)tempt God and go free.’ ”
