You stumble(A) day and night,
    and the prophets stumble with you.
So I will destroy your mother(B)
    my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.(C)

“Because you have rejected knowledge,
    I also reject you as my priests;
because you have ignored the law(D) of your God,
    I also will ignore your children.
The more priests there were,
    the more they sinned against me;
    they exchanged their glorious God[a](E) for something disgraceful.(F)
