Woe to the city that is rebelliousa and defiled, the oppressive city!
She has not obeyed; she has not accepted discipline. She has not trusted in the Lord; she has not drawn near to her God.
Theb princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are wolves of the night, which leave nothing forc the morning.
Her prophets are reckless- treacherous men. Her priests profane the sanctuary; they do violence to instruction.d5
The righteous Lord is in her;e He does no wrong. He applies His justice morning by morning; He does not fail at dawn, yet the one who does wrong knows no shame.
