4 They say, “Through our tongues we have power; our lips are our own — who can be our master? ” 5 “Because of the disaster of the needy and the groaning of the poor, I will now rise up,” says Yahveh. “I will provide security for the one who longs for it.”
The wicked ones think they can do what they want as long as they stay on the good side of those in power. But God hears what the politicians refuse to hear: the voices of the oppressed.
