Proverbs 30:14; Jeremiah 10:25; Hosea 7:7; Psalm 27:2; Amos 8:4; Micah 3:3

14  There are those whose teeth are hswords,

whose ifangs are knives,

to jdevour the poor from off the earth,

the needy from among mankind.


25  yPour out your wrath on the nations that know you not,

and on the peoples that call not on your name,

zfor they have devoured Jacob;

they have devoured him and consumed him,

and have laid waste his habitation.


All of them are hot as an oven,

and they devour their rulers.

All htheir kings ihave fallen,

and none of them calls upon me.


When evildoers assail me

to keat up my flesh,

my adversaries and foes,

it is they who stumble and fall.


Hear this, iyou who trample on the needy

and bring the poor of the land to an end,


pwho eat the flesh of my people,

and flay their skin from off them,

and break their bones in pieces

and chop them up like meat in a pot,

like flesh in a cauldron.
