Jeremiah 5:26 - 5:29

For wicked men are found among My people;
They watch like fowlers lying in wait;
They set a trap;
They catch men.
Like a cage full of birds,
So their houses are full of deceit;
Therefore they have become great and rich.
They are fat, they are sleek;
They also excel in deeds of evil;
They do not plead the cause,
The cause of the orphan, that they may succeed;
And they do not render justice for the poor.
Shall I not punish these people?’ declares Yahweh,
‘On a nation such as this
Shall I not avenge Myself?’
