Highlighting The Sins And The Judgments Of Israel

25 The conspiracy of its prophets in the midst of her [is] like a roaring lion [that] is tearing prey. They devour people, and they take wealth and treasure; they make its widows numerous in the midst of her. 26 Its priests treat my law violently, and they profane my holy objects; they do not distinguish between holy object and what is unholy, or between the clean and the unclean. They do not teach the difference, and they hide their eyes from my Sabbaths, and [so] I am profaned in the midst of them. 27 Its officials [are] like wolves tearing prey in its midst, to pour out blood, to destroy people, to make dishonest gain.
