10 For the land is full of adulterers;(A)
the land mourns(B) because of the curse,(C)
and the grazing lands in the wilderness have dried up.
Their way of life[a] has become evil,
and their power is not rightly used

11 because both prophet and priest are ungodly,(D)
even in my house(E) I have found their evil.
This is the Lord’s declaration.
12 Therefore, their way will seem
like slippery paths in the gloom.(F)
They will be driven away and fall down there,
for I will bring disaster on them,
the year of their punishment.(G)
This is the Lord’s declaration.
