Judgment On Evil Rulers

1 Moreover, the spirit of the LORD lift me up, and brought me unto the east port of the LORD's house. And behold, there were twenty five men under the door: among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azzur, and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, the rulers of the people. 2 Then said the LORD unto me, "Thou son of man: these men imagine mischief, and a wicked counsel take they in this city, 3 saying, 'Tush, there is no destruction at hand, let us build houses: this Jerusalem is the cauldron, and we be the flesh.'
