They covet fields and (A)seize them,
    and houses, and take them away;
they oppress a man and his house,
    a man and his inheritance.
Therefore thus says the Lord:
behold, against (B)this family I am devising disaster,[a]
    from which you cannot remove your necks,
and you (C)shall not walk haughtily,
    (D)for it will be a time of disaster.
In that day (E)they shall take up a taunt song against you
    and moan bitterly,
and say, “We are utterly ruined;
    (F)he changes the portion of my people;
(G)how he removes it from me!
    (H)To an apostate he allots our fields.”
