"Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed and establishes a town by crime!
"Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed And founds a town with violence!
"How terrible it will be for you who build cities with money gained by murder and corruption!
"Who do you think you are--building a town by murder, a city with crime?
A curse on him who is building a place with blood, and basing a town on evil-doing!
"Alas for you who build a town by bloodshed, and found a city on iniquity!"
"Woe to him who builds a town with bloodshed, Who establishes a city by iniquity!
