Woe to her that is rebellious and defiled, the oppressing city!
She listens to no voice, she accepts no correction. She does not trust in the LORD, she does not draw near to her God.
Her officials within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves that leave nothing till the morning.
Her prophets are wanton, faithless men; her priests profane what is sacred, they do violence to the law.
The LORD within her is righteous, he does no wrong; every morning he shows forth his justice, each dawn he does not fail; but the unjust knows no shame.
