If thou have done foolishly in lifting up thyself, or if thou have thought evil, lay thine hand upon thy mouth (Proverbs 30:32).
Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and please the cause of the poor and needy (Proverbs 31:8 – 9).
This is a generation of vultures, who have no mercy, and whose lovingkindness has fallen into the pit. Their thoughts are corrupt and their minds are destitute. They call evil good and good evil. They rejoice at the death of the poor and needy. And when many are without hope, they magnify their relentless endeavor to instill fear, and continue their evil ways. But the LORD watches the works of their hand and their reward will be just. A just reward for the wicked and a just reward for the righteous. Let no man say, I am good, and yet he detest the ways of God. If a man do what is contrary to the will of God, will he be justified before God? God knows the heart of men how they are evil. Restless and with thoughts of vengeance, they will not rest, lest they accomplish their evil. And when they are done they magnify themselves and say, You see how great we are? They are not like us, We are rich and powerful and deserving of life and everything good. But their lives are worthless; we can do without them. Let us continue on our quest to destroy mankind. Are we not our own god? And who is God that we shall be mindful of him? The God of Zion and of truth, the God of judgment, who hold vengeance for the wicked, surely shall deliver it in due time. Let not the wicked rejoice. Evil shall not prosper on this earth forever. Will God stand by idle, and not repay the works of unrighteousness? Surely, he shall consider it. For while you rejoice, and magnify your heart with gladness, then sudden destruction shall come upon you. I have seen the poor die: they vanish into the dust. I have seen the rich die: they vanish into the dust. Who shall regard them forever? Surely, if a man cannot live forever he is but vanity, waiting to return into the dust. Let not your heart rejoice to do evil but flee from it and consider the ways of the LORD. Believe this truth, all shall face the judgment of God. None shall escape the mighty hand of God. Let it be then that you shall find mercy before God; for his mercy endureth forever, not for the wicked, but for the righteous. Remember these things, my fellow man, that you may depart from evil. Remember that rich men shall not evade hell. And there is no mercy in hell. While you yet live consider this: consider this while you yet breathe. For it is appointed unto man, once to die, and then come judgment. Consider the works of thy hand, if they shall be justified before God. Remember it is he [God] who justify, and not man. The rich will not redeem the rich: all shall stand before God. Who were they that rise up against God? Are they not the rich that kill the poor and needy, who consider themselves worthy while the poor unworthy? Why do they not save themselves? It is too late: they are but men who are being judged by the Almighty One, who holds the balance in his hand. Be not like those who died in their sins and now stand in shame before the LORD. Repent, repent, repent, change from your wicked ways, and surrender your hearts to the LORD.
