Unjust Leaders Judged

1 Then I said: "Now listen, leaders of Jacob, you rulers of the house of Israel. Aren't you supposed to know what is just?
2 You hate good and love evil. You tear off the skin of people and [strip] their flesh from their bones.
3 You eat the flesh of my people after you strip their skin from them and break their bones. You chop them up like flesh for the cooking pot, like meat in a caldron."
4 Then they will cry out to the Lord, but He will not answer them. He will hide His face from them at that timea because of the crimes they have committed.
