Rulers and Prophets Denounced
1 And I said:
lHear, you heads of Jacob
and rulers of the house of Israel!
mIs it not for you to know justice?—
9 bHear this, you heads of the house of Jacob
and rulers of the house of Israel,
cwho detest justice
and make crooked all that is straight,
The Indictment of the Lord
1 qHear what the Lord says:
Arise, plead your case before the mountains,
and let the hills hear your voice.
and you enduring foundations of the earth,
for the Lord has an indictment against his people,
and he will contend with Israel.
Punishment Coming for Israel and Judah
1 vHear this, O priests!
Pay attention, O house of Israel!
Give ear, O house of the king!
For the judgment is for you;
for wyou have been a snare at Mizpah
and a net spread upon xTabor.
