Woe to the city of oppressors, rebellious and defiled!
She obeys no one, she accepts no correction. She does not trust in the LORD, she does not draw near to her God.
Her officials within her are roaring lions; her rulers are evening wolves, who leave nothing for the morning.
Her prophets are unprincipled; they are treacherous people. Her priests profane the sanctuary and do violence to the law.
The LORD within her is righteous; he does no wrong. Morning by morning he dispenses his justice, and every new day he does not fail, yet the unrighteous know no shame.
