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"
Then they will cry out to the LORD, but he will not answer them.7 At that time he will hide his face8 from them because of the evil they have done.9
