Then I said, "Listen, you leaders1 of Jacob, you rulers of the house of Israel. Should you not know justice,
you who hate good and love evil; who tear the skin from my people and the flesh from their bones;2
who eat my people's flesh,3 strip off their skin and break their bones in pieces;4 who chop5 them up like meat for the pan, like flesh for the pot?6"
