27 Your first father sinned, And your mediators have transgressed against Me. 27 Your first father sinned; your spokesmen rebelled against me.
28 Therefore I will profane the princes of the sanctuary; I will give Jacob to the curse, And Israel to reproaches. 28 So I will disgrace the dignitaries of your temple, and I will consign Jacob to destruction and Israel to scorn.
