The Righteous Shall Live by His Faith

Woe to the Chaldeans
6Shall not all these take up their taunt against him, with scoffing and riddles for him, and say,
“Woe to him who heaps up what is not his own—
9“Woe to him who gets evil gain for his house,
12“Woe to him who builds a town with blood
15“Woe to him who makes his neighbors drink—
18“What profit is an idol
a 4 Or faithfulness
