They covet fields and seize them,
        houses and take them away.
    They oppress a householder and those in his house,
        a man and his estate.

    You will no longer be able to go about arrogantly,
        for it will be an evil time.

            he removes what belongs to me;
            he gives away our fields to a rebel.”
