The Lord Accuses The Priests

4 Howbeit let, no man, contend, nor let him rebuke another, - since, thy people, are as they who contend against a priest: 5 So shouldst thou stumble in the daytime, and even the prophet stumble with thee, in the night, - and I should destroy thine own mother. 6 My people, are destroyed, for lack of knowledge, - Because, thou, hast rejected knowledge, therefore will I reject thee from ministering as priest unto me, and, because thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also, will forget thy children.
