1 I said, "Please listen, you heads of Ya`akov, And rulers of the house of Yisra'el: Isn't it for you to know justice?
2 You who hate the good, And love the evil; Who tear off their skin, And their flesh from off their bones;
3 Who also eat the flesh of my people, And flay their skin from off them, And break their bones, And chop them in pieces, as for the pot, And as flesh within the caldron.
4 Then they will cry to the LORD, But he will not answer them. Yes, he will hide his face from them at that time, Because they made their deeds evil."
