Jeremiah 23:33–34; Zephaniah 3:4; Jeremiah 6:13

33 dWhen one of this people, or a prophet or a priest asks you, What is the burden of the Lord? you shall say to them, You are the burden,1 and fI will cast you off, declares the Lord. 34 And as for the prophet, priest, or one of the people who says, The burden of the Lord, dI will punish that man and his household.


kHer prophets are fickle, treacherous men;

kher priests lprofane what is holy;

they do violence to the law.


13  zFor from the least to the greatest of them,

everyone ais greedy for unjust gain;

and from bprophet to priest,

everyone deals falsely.
