Therefore, it will be night for you- without visions; it will grow dark for you- without divination.a The sun will set on these prophets, and the daylight will turn black over them.
Then the seers will be ashamed and the diviners disappointed. They will all cover their mouthsbc because there will be no answer from God.d8
But as for me, I am filled with power by the Spirit of the Lord, with justice and courage, to proclaim to Jacob his rebellion and to Israel his sin.e
Listen to this, leaders of the house of Jacob, you rulers of the house of Israel, who abhor justice and pervert everything that is right,
who build Zion with bloodshed and Jerusalem with injustice.
Her leaders issue rulings for a bribe,f her priests teach for payment, and her prophets practice divination for money. Yet they lean on the Lord,g saying, "Isn't the Lord among us? No calamity will overtake us."
Therefore, because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become ruins, and the hill of the temple mount will be a thicket.h
