The Wickedness of Jerusalem

3 Woe to her who is rebellious and polluted,

To the oppressing city!

2 She has not obeyed His voice,

She has not received correction;

She has not trusted in the Lord,

She has not drawn near to her God.

3 aHer princes in her midst are roaring lions;

Her judges are bevening wolves

That leave not a bone till morning.

4 Her cprophets are insolent, treacherous people;

Her priests have 1polluted the sanctuary,

They have done dviolence to the law.

5 The Lord is righteous in her midst,

He will do no unrighteousness.

2Every morning He brings His justice to light;

He never fails,

But ethe unjust knows no shame.
