Rulers Denounced

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:1 - And I said,
“Hear now, heads of Jacob
And rulers of the house of Israel.
Is it not for you to know justice?

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:2 - “You who hate good and love evil,
Who tear off their skin from them
And their flesh from their bones,

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:3 - Who eat the flesh of my people,
Strip off their skin from them,
Break their bones
And chop them up as for the pot
And as meat in a kettle.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:4 - Then they will cry out to the LORD,
But He will not answer them.
Instead, He will hide His face from them at that time
Because they have practiced evil deeds.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:5 - Thus says the LORD concerning the prophets who lead my people astray;
When they have something to bite with their teeth,
They cry, “Peace,”
But against him who puts nothing in their mouths
They declare holy war.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:6 - Therefore it will be night for you—without vision,
And darkness for you—without divination.
The sun will go down on the prophets,
And the day will become dark over them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:7 - The seers will be ashamed
And the diviners will be embarrassed.
Indeed, they will all cover their [fn]mouths
Because there is no answer from God.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:8 - On the other hand I am filled with power—
With the Spirit of the LORD
And with justice and courage
To make known to Jacob his rebellious act,
Even to Israel his sin.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:9 - Now hear this, heads of the house of Jacob
And rulers of the house of Israel,
Who abhor justice
And twist everything that is straight,

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:10 - Who build Zion with bloodshed
And Jerusalem with violent injustice.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:11 - Her leaders pronounce judgment for a bribe,
Her priests instruct for a price
And her prophets divine for money.
Yet they lean on the LORD saying,
“Is not the LORD in our midst?
Calamity will not come upon us.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:12 - Therefore, on account of you
Zion will be plowed as a field,
Jerusalem will become a heap of ruins,
And the mountain of the [fn]temple will become high places of a forest.
