1 Woe to those who ascheme iniquity,
Who work out evil on their beds!
For it is in the cpower of their hands.
And houses, and take them away.
A man and his inheritance.
From which you ccannot remove your necks;
And you will not walk dhaughtily,
For it will be an eevil time.
‘We are completely cdestroyed!
He exchanges the portion of my people;
How He removes it from me!
To the apostate He dapportions our fields.’
For you by lot in the assembly of the Lord.
cReproaches will not be turned back.
‘Is the Spirit of the Lord aimpatient?
Are these His doings?’
Do not My words bdo good
To the one cwalking uprightly?
From cunsuspecting passers-by,
From those returned from war.
9 “The women of My people you aevict,
Each one from her pleasant house.
From her children you take My bsplendor forever.
For this is no place aof rest
Because of the buncleanness that brings on destruction,
A painful destruction.
11 “If a man walking after wind and afalsehood
Had told lies and said,
12 “I will surely aassemble all of you, Jacob,
I will surely gather the bremnant of Israel.
I will put them together like sheep in the fold;
Like a flock in the midst of its pasture
They will be noisy with men.
They break out, pass through the gate and go out by it.
So their king goes on before them,
And the Lord at their head.”
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
