Yet you say, 'What does God know? Does he judge through such darkness?

They say, "The LORD does not see; the God of Jacob takes no notice."
Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the LORD, who do their work in darkness and think, "Who sees us? Who will know?"
You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, 'No one sees me.' Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say to yourself, 'I am, and there is none besides me.'
