Leaders and Prophets Rebuked

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:1 - Then I said, “Listen, you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel. Should you not embrace justice,

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:2 - you who hate good and love evil; who tear the skin from my people and the flesh from their bones;

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:3 - who eat my people’s flesh, strip off their skin and break their bones in pieces; who chop them up like meat for the pan, like flesh for the pot?”

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:4 - Then they will cry out to the LORD, but he will not answer them. At that time he will hide his face from them because of the evil they have done.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:5 - This is what the LORD says: “As for the prophets who lead my people astray, they proclaim ‘peace’ if they have something to eat, but prepare to wage war against anyone who refuses to feed them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:6 - Therefore night will come over you, without visions, and darkness, without divination. The sun will set for the prophets, and the day will go dark for them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:7 - The seers will be ashamed and the diviners disgraced. They will all cover their faces because there is no answer from God.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:8 - But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the LORD, and with justice and might, to declare to Jacob his transgression, to Israel his sin.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:9 - Hear this, you leaders of Jacob, you rulers of Israel, who despise justice and distort all that is right;

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:10 - who build Zion with bloodshed, and Jerusalem with wickedness.

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:11 - Her leaders judge for a bribe, her priests teach for a price, and her prophets tell fortunes for money. Yet they look for the LORD’s support and say, “Is not the LORD among us? No disaster will come upon us.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMic 3:12 - Therefore because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Jerusalem will become a heap of rubble, the temple hill a mound overgrown with thickets.
