“Therefore thou shalt haue none that shall cast a cord by lot in the Congregation of the Lord.”
King James Version (KJV)
2. And they couet fields and take them by violence: and houses, and take them away: so they oppresse a man and his house, euen a man and his heritage. 3. Therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold, against this familie doe I deuise an euill, from which ye shall not remoue your necks, neither shall ye goe haughtily: for this time is euill. 4. ¶ In that day shall one take vp a parable against you, and lament with a dolefull lamentation, and say, We be vtterly spoiled: hee hath changed the portion of my people: how hath he remoued it from me? turning away hee hath diuided our fields. 5. Therefore thou shalt haue none that shall cast a cord by lot in the Congregation of the Lord. 6. Prophecie ye not, say they, to them that prophecie: they shall not prophecie to them, that they shall not take shame. 7. ¶ O thou that art named the house of Iacob, is the Spirit of the Lord straitned? are these his dongs? doe not my words do good to him that walketh vprightly? 8. Euen of late, my people is risen vp as an enemie: ye pull off the robe with the garment, frō them that passe by securely, as men auerse from warre.
