3 eO you who put far away the day of disaster
fand bring near the seat of violence?
14 The Lord will enter into judgment
with the jelders and princes of his people:
lthe spoil of the poor is in your houses.
15 What do you mean by mcrushing my people,
by grinding the face of the poor?”
declares the Lord God of hosts.
10 Can I forget any longer the treasures1 of wickedness in the house of the wicked,
and the scant measure that is accursed?
11 Shall I acquit the man jwith wicked scales
and with a bag of deceitful weights?
your inhabitants lspeak lies,
and mtheir tongue is deceitful in their mouth.
