And I said,H559 Hear,H8085 I prayH4994 you, O headsH7218 of Jacob,H3290 and you princesH7101 of the houseH1004 of Israel;H3478 Is it not for you to knowH3045 judgment?H4941
Who hateH8130 the good,H2896 and loveH157 the evil;H7451 who pluckH1497 off their skinH5785 from off them, and their fleshH7607 from offH5921 their bones;H6106
WhoH834 also eatH398 the fleshH7607 of my people,H5971 and flayH6584 their skinH5785 from offH5921 them; and they breakH6476 their bones,H6106 and chopH6566 them in pieces, as for the pot,H5518 and as fleshH1320 withinH8432 the caldron.H7037
ThenH227 shall they cryH2199 to the LORD,H3068 but he will not hearH6030 them: he will even hideH5641 his faceH6440 from them at that time,H6256 as they have behavedH7489 themselves illH7489 in their doings.H4611
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 concerningH5921 the prophetsH5030 that make my peopleH5971 err,H8582 that biteH5391 with their teeth,H8127 and cry,H7121 Peace;H7965 and he that putsH5414 not intoH5921 their mouths,H6310 they even prepareH6942 warH4421 againstH5921 him.
ThereforeH3651 nightH3915 shall be to you, that you shall not have a vision;H2377 and it shall be darkH2821 to you, that you shall not divine;H7080 and the sunH8121 shall goH935 down overH5921 the prophets,H5030 and the dayH3117 shall be darkH6937 overH5921 them.
Then shall the seersH2374 be ashamed,H954 and the divinersH7080 confounded:H2659 yes, they shall allH3605 coverH5844 their lips;H8222 for there is noH369 answerH4617 of God.H430
But trulyH199 I am fullH4390 of powerH3581 by the spiritH7307 of the LORD,H3068 and of judgment,H4941 and of might,H1369 to declareH5046 to JacobH3290 his transgression,H6588 and to IsraelH3478 his sin.H2403
HearH8085 this,H2063 I prayH4994 you, you headsH7218 of the houseH1004 of Jacob,H3290 and princesH7101 of the houseH1004 of Israel,H3478 that abhorH8581 judgment,H4941 and pervertH6140 allH3605 equity.H3477
They buildH1129 up ZionH6726 with blood,H1818 and JerusalemH3389 with iniquity.H5766
The headsH7218 thereof judgeH8199 for reward,H7810 and the priestsH3548 thereof teachH3384 for hire,H4242 and the prophetsH5030 thereof divineH7080 for money:H3701 yet will they leanH8172 on the LORD,H3068 and say,H559 Is not the LORDH3068 amongH7130 us? noneH3808 evilH7451 can comeH935 on us.
ThereforeH3651 shall ZionH6726 for your sakeH1558 be plowedH2790 as a field,H7704 and JerusalemH3389 shall becomeH1961 heaps,H5856 and the mountainH2022 of the houseH1004 as the highH1116 places of the forest.H3293
