Yahweh Has an Indictment

Hear the word of Yahweh, O children of Israel,
for Yahweh has an indictment against the inhabitants of the land.
There is no faithfulness or loyalty,
    there is no knowledge of God in the land.
Swearing and lying,
    murdering and stealing,
        and adultery break out,[a]
    and bloodshed follows bloodshed.
