018:024:001
Why,
seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty,
do they that know him not see his days?


018:024:002
Some remove the landmarks;
they violently take away flocks,
and feed thereof.


018:024:003
They drive away the ass of the fatherless,
they take the widow's ox for a pledge.


018:024:004
They turn the needy out of the way:
the poor of the earth hide themselves together.


018:024:005
Behold,
as wild asses in the desert,
go they forth to their work;
rising betimes for a prey:
the wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children.


018:024:006
They reap every one his corn in the field:
and they gather the vintage of the wicked.


018:024:007
They cause the naked to lodge without clothing,
that they have no covering in the cold.


018:024:008
They are wet with the showers of the mountains,
and embrace the rock for want of a shelter.


018:024:009
They pluck the fatherless from the breast,
and take a pledge of the poor.


018:024:010
They cause him to go naked without clothing,
and they take away the sheaf from the hungry;


018:024:011
Which make oil within their walls,
and tread their winepresses,
and suffer thirst.


018:024:012
Men groan from out of the city,
and the soul of the wounded crieth out:
yet God layeth not folly to them.


018:024:013
They are of those that rebel against the light;
they know not the ways thereof,
nor abide in the paths thereof.


018:024:014
The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy,
and in the night is as a thief.


018:024:015
The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight,
saying,
No eye shall see me:
and disguiseth his face.


018:024:016
In the dark they dig through houses,
which they had marked for themselves in the daytime:
they know not the light.


018:024:017
For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death:
if one know them,
they are in the terrors of the shadow of death.


018:024:018
He is swift as the waters;
their portion is cursed in the earth:
he beholdeth not the way of the vineyards.


018:024:019
Drought and heat consume the snow waters:
so doth the grave those which have sinned.


018:024:020
The womb shall forget him;
the worm shall feed sweetly on him;
he shall be no more remembered;
and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.


018:024:021
He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not:
and doeth not good to the widow.


018:024:022
He draweth also the mighty with his power:
he riseth up,
and no man is sure of life.


018:024:023
Though it be given him to be in safety,
whereon he resteth;
yet his eyes are upon their ways.


018:024:024
They are exalted for a little while,
but are gone and brought low;
they are taken out of the way as all other,
and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.


018:024:025
And if it be not so now,
who will make me a liar,
and make my speech nothing worth?
