He says to himself, "God has forgotten; He has hidden His face; He will never see it."
Behold, they belch forth with their mouth; Swords are in their lips, For, they say, "Who hears?"
Woe to those who deeply hide their plans from the LORD, And whose deeds are done in a dark place, And they say, "Who sees us?" or "Who knows us?"
Then He said to me, "The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is very, very great, and the land is filled with blood and the city is full of perversion; for they say, 'The LORD has forsaken the land, and the LORD does not see!'
