But I must say this, ·people [L house] of Jacob: ·The Lord is becoming angry [or Does not the Lord grow impatient…?] about what you have done. ·My words are welcome [or Are not my words good…?] to the person who ·does what is right [L walks uprightly].
“Don’t preach,” say the preachers. “Don’t preach such stuff. Nothing bad will happen to us. Talk like this to the family of Jacob? Does God lose his temper? Is this the way he acts? Isn’t he on the side of good people? Doesn’t he help those who help themselves?”
Should it be said to the people of Jacob, “Has the Spirit of Eternal lost His patience with us? Is this how He works?” Eternal One: When I speak, don’t good things happen to the ones who uprightly follow My fair path?
saith the house of Jacob. Whether the Spirit of the Lord is abridged, either such be the thoughts of him? Whether my words be not good, with him that goeth rightly? (O house of Jacob, is the Spirit of the Lord abridged, that is, is his patience at an end, or do such things be his thoughts? Be my words not good, to him who goeth uprightly?)
