26 'For wicked men are found among My people, They 1watch like fowlers alying in wait; They set a trap, They catch men. 27 'Like a cage full of birds, So their houses are full of 2deceit; Therefore they have become great and rich. 28 'They are 3fat, they are sleek, They also bexcel in deeds of wickedness; They do not plead the cause, The cause of the c4orphan, that they may prosper; And they do not ddefend the rights of the poor. 29 '5Shall I not punish ethese people?' declares the LORD, 'On a nation such as this Shall I not avenge Myself?' 30 "An appalling and 6horrible thing Has happened in the land: 31 The 7prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule fon their own authority; And My people 8love it so! But what will you do at the end of it?
