But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD, and of judgment, and of might, to declare unto Jacob his transgression, and to Israel his sin.9Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhorjudgment, and pervert all equity.10
They build upZion with blood,a and Jerusalem with iniquity.11
The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say ,b Is not the LORDamong us? none evil can come upon us.
Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.
