Ezekiel 22:6; Micah 3:1-2; Zephaniah 3:3; Matthew 7:15

Behold, gthe princes of Israel in you, every one according to his power, have been bent on shedding blood.


Rulers and Prophets Denounced

And I said:

lHear, you heads of Jacob

and rulers of the house of Israel!

mIs it not for you to know justice?

you nwho hate the good and love the evil,

owho tear the skin from off my people1

and their flesh from off their bones,


iHer officials within her

are roaring lions;

her judges are jevening wolves

that leave nothing till the morning.


A Tree and Its Fruit

15 jBeware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are kravenous wolves.
