2:1 Woe to those who devise wickedness and work evil upon their beds! When the morning dawns, they perform it, because it is in the power of their hand.

2:2 They covet fields, and seize them; and houses, and take them away; they oppress a man and his house, a man and his inheritance.

2:3 Therefore thus says the LORD: Behold, against this family I am devising evil, from which you cannot remove your necks; and you shall not walk haughtily, for it will be an evil time.

2:4 In that day they shall take up a taunt song against you, and wail with bitter lamentation, and say, "We are utterly ruined; he changes the portion of my people; how he removes it from me! Among our captors he divides our fields."

2:5 Therefore you will have none to cast the line by lot in the assembly of the LORD.

2:6 "Do not preach" -- thus they preach -- "one should not preach of such things; disgrace will not overtake us."

2:7 Should this be said, O house of Jacob? Is the Spirit of the LORD impatient? Are these his doings? Do not my words do good to him who walks uprightly?

2:8 But you rise against my people as an enemy; you strip the robe from the peaceful, from those who pass by trustingly with no thought of war.

2:9 The women of my people you drive out from their pleasant houses; from their young children you take away my glory for ever.

2:10 Arise and go, for this is no place to rest; because of uncleanness that destroys with a grievous destruction.

2:11 If a man should go about and utter wind and lies, saying, "I will preach to you of wine and strong drink," he would be the preacher for this people!

2:12 I will surely gather all of you, O Jacob, I will gather the remnant of Israel; I will set them together like sheep in a fold, like a flock in its pasture, a noisy multitude of men.

2:13 He who opens the breach will go up before them; they will break through and pass the gate, going out by it. Their king will pass on before them, the LORD at their head.
