וְשַׁבְתִּי אֲנִי, וָאֶרְאֶה אֶת-כָּל-הָעֲשֻׁקִים, אֲשֶׁר נַעֲשִׂים, תַּחַת הַשָּׁמֶשׁ; וְהִנֵּה דִּמְעַת הָעֲשֻׁקִים, וְאֵין לָהֶם מְנַחֵם, וּמִיַּד עֹשְׁקֵיהֶם כֹּחַ, וְאֵין לָהֶם מְנַחֵם.
I further observed all the oppressions that goes on under the sun. Behold, the tears of the oppressed. There is no one to comfort them. In the hands of their oppressors there is power, and there is no one to comfort them. [Translation by Rabbi Steve Greenberg]
