When human rights are perverted
in the presence of the Most High,
when one’s case is subverted
— does the Lord not see it?
Who can command and have it done,
if the Lord has not ordained it?
Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
that good and bad come?
Why should any who draw breath complain
about the punishment of their sins?
Let us test and examine our ways,
and return to the Lord.
