8 Thus says my Lord Jehovah,
who gathers up the outcasts of Israel: I will gather others to those already gathered.


9 All you wild beasts, you animals of the forest,
come and devour!


10 Their watchmen are altogether blind and unaware;
all of them are but dumb watchdogs unable to bark, lolling seers fond of slumber.


11 Gluttonous dogs, and insatiable,
such indeed are insensible shepherds.


They are all diverted to their own way,
every one after his own advantage. 12 Come, they say, let us get wine
and have our fill of liquor. For tomorrow will be like today, only far better!


1 The righteous disappear,
and no man gives it a thought; the godly are gathered out,
but no one perceives that from impending calamity the righteous are withdrawn. 2 They who walk uprightly shall attain peace,
and rest in their beds.
