Jerusalem Refused to Repent

1 1Run to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, look and take note! Search her squares to see 2if you can find a man, one who does justice and seeks truth, 3that I may pardon her. 2 4Though they say, "As the LORD lives," 5yet they swear falsely. 3 O LORD, do not your eyes look for truth? 6You have struck them down, but they felt no anguish; you have consumed them, but they refused to take correction. 7They have made their faces harder than rock; they have refused to repent. 4 Then I said, "These are only the poor; they have no sense; 8for they do not know the way of the LORD, the justice of their God. 5 I will go to the great and will speak to them, for they know the way of the LORD, the justice of their God." 9But they all alike had broken the yoke; they had burst the bonds. 6 Therefore 10a lion from the forest shall strike them down; a 11wolf from the desert shall devastate them. 12A leopard is watching their cities; everyone who goes out of them shall be torn in pieces, because their transgressions are many, their 13apostasies are great.
