033:003:001
And I said,
Hear,
I pray you,
O heads of Jacob,
and ye princes of the house of Israel;
Is it not for you to know judgment?


033:003:002
Who hate the good,
and love the evil;
who pluck off their skin from off them,
and their flesh from off their bones;


033:003:003
Who also eat the flesh of my people,
and flay their skin from off them;
and they break their bones,
and chop them in pieces,
as for the pot,
and as flesh within the caldron.


033:003:004
Then shall they cry unto the LORD,
but he will not hear them:
he will even hide his face from them at that time,
as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.


033:003:005
Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err,
that bite with their teeth,
and cry,
Peace;
and he that putteth not into their mouths,
they even prepare war against him.


033:003:006
Therefore night shall be unto you,
that ye shall not have a vision;
and it shall be dark unto you,
that ye shall not divine;
and the sun shall go down over the prophets,
and the day shall be dark over them.


033:003:007
Then shall the seers be ashamed,
and the diviners confounded:
yea,
they shall all cover their lips;
for there is no answer of God.


033:003:008
But truly I am full of power by the spirit of the LORD,
and of judgment,
and of might,
to declare unto Jacob his transgression,
and to Israel his sin.


033:003:009
Hear this,
I pray you,
ye heads of the house of Jacob,
and princes of the house of Israel,
that abhor judgment,
and pervert all equity.


033:003:010
They build up Zion with blood,
and Jerusalem with iniquity.


033:003:011
The heads thereof judge for reward,
and the priests thereof teach for hire,
and the prophets thereof divine for money:
yet will they lean upon the LORD,
and say,
Is not the LORD among us?
none evil can come upon us.


033:003:012
Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field,
and Jerusalem shall become heaps,
and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.
