“Woe to him who builds his house
through unrighteousness
and his upper rooms through injustice,
who makes his neighbor serve him for nothing
and does not give him his wages, Bible

“builds his house through unrighteousness.” In Judah, the rich and powerful were oppressing the people. Only the rich and powerful could build houses with upper rooms and then find ways not to pay the workers.
