8 The priests did not say, ‘Where is the Lord?’
yThose who handle the law did not know me;
athe prophets prophesied by Baal
and went after bthings that do not profit.
13 The prophets will become wind;
the word is not in them.
Thus shall it be done to them!’”
31 xthe prophets prophesy falsely,
and the priests rule at their direction;
ymy people love to have it so,
but what will you do when the end comes?
13 z“For from the least to the greatest of them,
everyone ais greedy for unjust gain;
and from bprophet to priest,
everyone deals falsely.
