7 8 And the word of the LORD came to Zechari'ah, saying, 7 9 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy each to his brother, 7 10 do not oppress the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner, or the poor; and let none of you devise evil against his brother in your heart." 7 11 But they refused to hearken, and turned a stubborn shoulder, and stopped their ears that they might not hear. 7 12 They made their hearts like adamant lest they should hear the law and the words which the LORD of hosts had sent by his Spirit through the former prophets. Therefore great wrath came from the LORD of hosts. 7 13 "As I called, and they would not hear, so they called, and I would not hear," says the LORD of hosts, 7 14 "and I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations which they had not known. Thus the land they left was desolate, so that no one went to and fro, and the pleasant land was made desolate."
