Hear the word of the Lord,
All you nations,
For has the Lord not seen,
And is anything hidden from Him?
Today you shake your hands in pledge,
But oppression and dishonest scales,
Are in your hands,
You gather for your own pleasure,
And give no thought for the widow and the orphan.
You kings of the earth,
You gather your play things,
And jostle for power,
You kill the innocent,
And oppress the poor,
But your hearts remain bare.
Do you not think and can you not see,
The Lord sees your hearts,
He has set a day aside,
A day of judgment,
For those kings of the earth.
You laugh and pat yourselves on the back,
You raise yourselves up,
And feel there is none to judge.
But, in an instant your day will come,
When you are not expecting it.
The Lord will avenge those innocent,
that you oppressed and killed.
His judgement is with Him,
And He will come as a warrior,
Treading through the winepress of His anger,
Blood up to the horses bridle,
He will recompense you.
You will not know the day,
Your sins have risen to heaven,
A stench in His nostrils,
He will recompense,
And gather you as a heap, for destruction.
