5:10 The Israelites hate anyone who arbitrates at the city gate;
they despise anyone who speaks honestly.
5:11 Therefore, because you make the poor pay taxes on their crops
and exact a grain tax from them,
you will not live in the houses you built with chiseled stone,
nor will you drink the wine from the fine vineyards you planted.
5:12 Certainly I am aware of your many rebellious acts
and your numerous sins.
You torment the innocent, you take bribes,
and you deny justice to the needy at the city gate.
5:13 For this reason whoever is smart keeps quiet in such a time,
for it is an evil time.
