«Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope: / That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it! / Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! / Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! / Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: / Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! / Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.»
