People will oppress each other-- man against man, neighbor against neighbor.1 The young will rise up against the old, the base against the honorable.
A man will seize one of his brothers at his father's home, and say, "You have a cloak, you be our leader; take charge of this heap of ruins!"
But in that day2 he will cry out, "I have no remedy.3 I have no food4 or clothing in my house; do not make me the leader of the people."58
Jerusalem staggers, Judah is falling;6 their words7 and deeds8 are against the LORD, defying9 his glorious presence.
