The Woes

Woe to the rich, for you have received your only compensation.

Woe to you who are bloated now, for you will be hungry in eternity.

Woe to you who are laughing now, for you will cry bitter tears.

Woe to you who judge others harshly, for that is how you will be judged.

Woe to you who hate, for you will be lost and alone in eternity.

Woe to you, the hypocrite and pretender to the Way of God: You are like a dog sleeping in a manger; neither do you eat, nor do you let the livestock eat. You cleanse and polish the outside of your bowl, but the inside is full of deceit and decadence. You are like whitewashed tombs, beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of death and decay. You who outwardly appear as the just and the righteous, but hide your hearts of iniquity and larceny beneath your fine-woven cloth; you who praise and quote the prophets, but are the children of their executioners; you who surround yourself with the finest of luxury, parade yourself in public places to be seen by all, sit in the front row of the church or temple and sing loud praises to God, and then leave to foreclose on the house of a widowed mother; you who tithe and tax even the small comforts and simple pleasures of life for money to pave the roads to your estates. You are a brood of vipers and will be cast together into the darkest pit of eternity.
