Quote:
{26:128} Do you construct on every elevation a sign, amusing yourselves,

I suggest,
{26:128} How come you build on every elevation a landmark, trifling?

Quote:
{26:129} And take for yourselves palaces and fortresses that you might abide eternally?

I suggest,
{26:129} "And take for yourselves strongholds, that you may perpetuate?"

Quote:
{26:130} And when you strike, you strike as tyrants.

I suggest,
{26:130} "And when you lay hand, you lay hand as tyrants."

Quote:
{26:131} So fear God and obey me.

I suggest,
{26:131} "So, watch out for God and obey me."
