They (A)covet fields and take them by violence,
Also houses, and seize them.
So they oppress a man and his house,
A man and his inheritance.

Therefore thus says the Lord:

“Behold, against this (B)family I am devising (C)disaster,
From which you cannot remove your necks;
Nor shall you walk haughtily,
For this is an evil time.
In that day one shall take up a proverb against you,
And (D)lament with a bitter lamentation, saying:
‘We are utterly destroyed!
He has changed the [a]heritage of my people;
How He has removed it from me!
To [b]a turncoat He has divided our fields.’ ”
