They covet fields and seize them;
    they covet[a] houses, and grab them, too.
They harass the valiant man, along with his household,
    an individual and his estate.

“Therefore this is what the Lord says,
‘I’m crafting evil against this family,
    from which you can’t escape.[b]
You won’t strut around arrogantly,
    because the times are evil.’
“When this happens,[c] someone will compose a proverb about you, lamenting sorrowfully,
    ‘We are completely ruined!
        He has given my people’s heritage to others.[d]
    How he has removed it from me,
        dividing up our fields!’
