But God says to the wicked:
“What right do you have to recite My statutes
and to take My covenant on your lips?
You hate instruction
and turn your back on My words.
When you see a thief,
you make friends with him,
and you associate with adulterers.
You unleash your mouth for evil
and harness your tongue for deceit.
You sit, maligning your brother,
slandering your mother’s son.
You have done these things, and I kept silent;
you thought I was just like you.
But I will rebuke you
and lay out the case before you.
