Goodness has disappeared


7:1 Woe is me! Because I am like the leftover of the summer fruits, like
gleanings of the grape of the harvest: there is no cluster to eat: my soul desires a ripe fruit.
7:2 The holy one has disappeared out of the earth: and the upright isn’t among mankind: they all lie in ambush for blood; each man
traps his brother with a net.
7:3 That they expect to benefit from the evil of their hands, the ruler asks
for a bribe, and the judge has a share in the payment ; and the nobleman speaks his selfish desires; and they weave it together.
7:4 The best of them is like a brier: the most upright is like a
hedge of thorns : the day of your watchmen and your punishment is coming; now you will become perplexed.
7:5 Don’t y’all trust in a friend, don’t
ya’ll put confidence in an offical: keep the doors of your mouth from the one that lies [in] your bosom.
7:6 For the son disgraces the father, the daughter rises up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his household.
