Israel’s Irresponsible Leaders

(A)All you beasts of the field, come to devour,
All you beasts in the forest.
10 His watchmen are (B)blind,
They are all ignorant;
(C)They are all dumb dogs,
They cannot bark;
[a]Sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
11 Yes, they are (D)greedy[b] dogs
Which (E)never[c] have enough.
And they are shepherds
Who cannot understand;
They all look to their own way,
Every one for his own gain,
From his own territory.
12 “Come,” one says, “I will bring wine,
And we will fill ourselves with intoxicating (F)drink;
(G)Tomorrow will be (H)as today,
And much more abundant.”
