Therefore night will come over you, without visions, and darkness, without divination.1 The sun will set for the prophets,2 and the day will go dark for them.37
The seers will be ashamed4 and the diviners disgraced.5 They will all cover6 their faces7 because there is no answer from God.8"
But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the LORD, and with justice and might, to declare to Jacob his transgression, to Israel his sin.99
Hear this, you leaders of the house of Jacob, you rulers of the house of Israel, who despise justice and distort all that is right;1010
who build11 Zion with bloodshed,12 and Jerusalem with wickedness.1311
Her leaders judge for a bribe,14 her priests teach for a price,15 and her prophets tell fortunes for money.16 Yet they lean17 upon the LORD and say, "Is not the LORD among us? No disaster will come upon us."1812
Therefore because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble,19 the temple20 hill a mound overgrown with thickets.21
