Zephaniah 3:1-5 NLT

1 How terrible it will be for rebellious, polluted Jerusalem, the city of violence and crime.
2 It proudly refuses to listen even to the voice of the LORD. No one can tell it anything; it refuses all correction. It does not trust in the LORD or draw near to its God.
3 Its leaders are like roaring lions hunting for their victims -- out for everything they can get. Its judges are like ravenous wolves at evening time, who by dawn have left no trace of their prey.
4 Its prophets are arrogant liars seeking their own gain. Its priests defile the Temple by disobeying God's laws.
5 But the LORD is still there in the city, and he does no wrong. Day by day his justice is more evident, but no one takes notice -- the wicked know no shame.
