Hosea 6:9; Hosea 12:14; Micah 3:10; Micah 7:2

As robbers rlie in wait for a man,

so the priests band together;

they murder on the way to sShechem;

they commit villainy.

14  yEphraim has given bitter provocation;

so his Lord zwill leave his bloodguilt on him

aand will repay him for his disgraceful deeds.

10  dwho build Zion with blood

and Jerusalem with iniquity.

wThe godly has perished from the earth,

and xthere is no one upright among mankind;

ythey all lie in wait for blood,

and zeach hunts the other with a net.
