Rulers and Prophets Denounced

1 And I said: 1Hear, you heads of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel! 2Is it not for you to know justice?--
2 you 3who hate the good and love the evil, 4who tear the skin from off my peoplea and their flesh from off their bones,
3 5who eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them, and break their bones in pieces and chop them up like meat in a pot, like flesh in a cauldron.
4 6Then they will cry to the LORD, but he will not answer them; 7he will hide his face from them at that time, because they have made their deeds evil.
