They (A)covet fields and then (B)seize them,
And houses, and take them away.
They [a](C)rob a man and his house,
A man and his inheritance.

Therefore thus says the Lord,

“Behold, I am (D)planning against this (E)family a calamity
From which you (F)cannot remove your necks;
And you will not walk (G)haughtily,
For it will be an (H)evil time.
“On that day they will (I)take up against you a [b]taunt
And [c](J)utter a bitter lamentation and say,
‘We are completely (K)destroyed!
He exchanges the portion of my people;
How He removes it from me!
To the apostate He (L)apportions our fields.’
