3 Woe to her who is rebellious and polluted, To the oppressing city! 2 She has not obeyed His voice, She has not received correction; She has not trusted in the Lord, She has not drawn near to her God.
3 Her princes in her midst are roaring lions; Her judges areevening wolves That leave not a bone till morning. 4 Her prophets are insolent, treacherous people; Her priests have [a]polluted the sanctuary, They have done violence to the law. 5 The Lordis righteous in her midst, He will do no unrighteousness. [b]Every morning He brings His justice to light; He never fails, But the unjust knows no shame.
6 “I have cut off nations, Their fortresses are devastated; I have made their streets desolate, With none passing by. Their cities are destroyed; There is no one, no inhabitant. 7 I said, ‘Surely you will fear Me, You will receive instruction’— So that her dwelling would not be cut off, Despite everything for which I punished her. But [c]they rose early and corrupted all their deeds.
