New International Version
9 “Woe to him who builds(A) his house by unjust gain,(B)
setting his nest(C) on high
to escape the clutches of ruin!
10 You have plotted the ruin(D) of many peoples,
shaming(E) your own house and forfeiting your life.
11 The stones(F) of the wall will cry out,
and the beams of the woodwork will echo it.
12 “Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed(G)
and establishes a town by injustice!
