8 But as for me, 1I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the LORD, and with justice and might, to declare to Jacob 2his transgression and to Israel his sin.
9 3Hear this, you heads of the house of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel, 4who detest justice and make crooked all that is straight,
10 5who build Zion with blood and Jerusalem with iniquity.
11 6Its heads give judgment for a bribe; 7its priests teach for a price; 8its prophets practice divination for money; 9yet they lean on the LORD and 10say, "Is not the LORD in the midst of us? 11No disaster shall come upon us."
12 Therefore because of you 12Zion shall be plowed as a field; Jerusalem 13shall become a heap of ruins, and 14the mountain of the house 15a wooded height.
