Hear you nations of the earth,
Darkness covers you like a shroud,
Deep darkness overcomes you,
Like a sleep walker,
The nations walk in darkness.
A little bit here and a little bit there,
You gather your wealth and hoard it.
Where is righteousness and justice?
For you say there is no one to see.
You who charm with your lips,
But devise evil in your heart.
Justice is bought for a bribe
And good is seen as evil and evil is seen as good,
The innocent are dragged away and destroyed.
Pride has entered your heart,
You who rise up over the nations.
You say in your heart,
“Who is like me?”
“No one can stand against me.”
You have risen high but you will be laid low.
For a time has been assigned,
For you to rule from on high,
But your pride is too great.
Do you not know?
In an instant you will be destroyed.
For the Lord will do it.
