The Evil Plans of People

Trouble will come to those who make plans to sin.
    They lie on their beds making their evil plans.
Then when the morning light comes, they do what they planned,
    because they have the power to do what they want.
They want fields, so they take them.
    They want houses, so they take them.
They cheat a man
    and take his house and his land.

The Lord’s Plans to Punish the People

That is why the Lord says:
“Look, I am planning trouble against this family.
    You will not be able to save yourselves.[a]
You will stop being proud,
    because bad times are coming.
