Context
Woe to the Chaldeans

6Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that increases that which is not his! how long? and to him that lades himself with thick clay! 7Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite you, and awake that shall vex you, and you shall be for booties to them? 8Because you have spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil you; because of men's blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein. 9Woe to him that covets an evil covetousness to his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil! 10You have consulted shame to your house by cutting off many people, and have sinned against your soul. 11For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it. 12Woe to him that builds a town with blood, and establishes a city by iniquity! 13Behold, is it not of the LORD of hosts that the people shall labor in the very fire, and the people shall weary themselves for very vanity? 14For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. 15Woe to him that gives his neighbor drink, that put your bottle to him, and make him drunken also, that you may look on their nakedness! 16You are filled with shame for glory: drink you also, and let your foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the LORD's right hand shall be turned to you, and shameful spewing shall be on your glory. 17For the violence of Lebanon shall cover you, and the spoil of beasts, which made them afraid, because of men's blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein. 18What profits the graven image that the maker thereof has graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusts therein, to make dumb idols? 19Woe to him that said to the wood, Awake; to the dumb stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the middle of it. 20But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.
