26 O daughter of my people, put on sackcloth And roll in ashes; Mourn as for an only son, A lamentation most bitter. For suddenly the destroyer Will come upon us. 27 "I have made you an assayer and a tester among My people, That you may know and assay their way." 28 All of them are stubbornly rebellious, Going about as a talebearer They are bronze and iron; They, all of them, are corrupt.
