"29. Oh ye wicked and ye perverse generation; ye hardened and ye stiffnecked people, how long will ye suppose that the Lord will suffer you? Yea, how long will ye suffer yourselves to be led by foolish and blind eyes? Yea, how long will ye choose darkness rather than light?
30. Yea, behold, the anger of the Lord is already kindled against you; behold, he hath cursed the land because of your iniquity.
31. And behold, the time cometh that he curseth your riches, that they become slippery, that ye cannot hold them; and in the days of your poverty ye cannot retain them.
32. And in the days of your poverty ye shall cry unto the Lord; and in vain shall ye cry, for your desolation is already come upon you, and your destruction is made sure; and then shall ye weep and howl in that day, saith the Lord of Hosts. And then shall ye lament, and say;
33. O that I had repented, and...O that we had remembered the Lord our God in the day that he gave us our riches, and then they would not have become slippery that we could lose them; for behold, our riches are gone from us."
