eWho pluck off their skin from off them,
And their flesh from off their bones;
And flay their skin from off them;
And gthey break their bones,
And hchop them in pieces, as for the pot,
4 lThen shall they cry unto the Lord, but he will not hear them:
mHe will even hide his face from them at that time,
As they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.
And rhe that putteth not into their mouths,
They even sprepare war against him.
And wthe sun shall go down over the prophets,
And wthe day shall be dark over them.
For zthere is no answer of God.
8 But truly aI am full of power by the spirit of the Lord,
And of judgment, and of might,
bTo declare unto Jacob his transgression,
bAnd to Israel his sin.
9 cHear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob,
cAnd princes of the house of Israel,
That abhor judgment, and dpervert all equity.
And Jerusalem with iniquity.
11 gThe heads thereof judge for reward,
And hthe priests thereof teach for hire,
lIs not the Lord among us?
mNone evil can come upon us.
