22:4 Because of the blood which thou hast shed, hast thou become guilty, And, with the manufactured gods which thou hast made, hast thou defiled thyself, Thus hast thou brought near thy days, And hast come unto thy years,For this cause, have I delivered thee, As a reproach, to the nations, And as a derision, to all the lands.
