A Prayer in Deep Distress

33 Woe to you (A)who plunder, though you have not been plundered;
And you who deal treacherously, though they have not dealt treacherously with you!
(B)When you cease plundering,
You will be (C)plundered;
When you make an end of dealing treacherously,
They will deal treacherously with you.

And the remnant of Jacob
Shall be among the Gentiles,
In the midst of many peoples,
Like a (A)lion among the beasts of the forest,
Like a young lion among flocks of sheep,
Who, if he passes through,
Both treads down and tears in pieces,
And none can deliver.

(A)Because you have plundered many nations,
All the remnant of the people shall plunder you,
Because of men’s [a]blood
And the violence of the land and the city,
And of all who dwell in it.
