And I said: Listen, you heads of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel! Should you not know justice?—
you who hate the good and love the evil, who tear the skin off my people, a and the flesh off their bones;
who eat the flesh of my people, flay their skin off them, break their bones in pieces, and chop them up like meat b in a kettle, like flesh in a caldron.
Then they will cry to the Lord, but he will not answer them; he will hide his face from them at that time, because they have acted wickedly.
