A (9:17) Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on THEIR FATHERLESS
B (9:17) and WIDOWS: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
C (9:18,19) For wickedness burneth as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke. Through the wrath of Yahweh of hosts is the land darkened, and THE PEOPLE shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.
D (9:20,21) And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm: MANASSEH,
E (9:21) EPHRAIM;
E’ (9:21) and EPHRAIM,
D’ (9:21) MANASSEH: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
C’ (10:1,2) Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; 2 To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of MY PEOPLE,
B’ (10:2) that WIDOWS may be their prey,
A’ (10:2) and that they may rob THE FATHERLESS!
