10 The land is full of adulterers;
    because of the curse[a] the land lies parched
    and the pastures in the wilderness are withered.
The prophets follow an evil course
    and use their power unjustly.

11 ‘Both prophet and priest are godless;
    even in my temple I find their wickedness,’
declares the Lord.
12 ‘Therefore their path will become slippery;
    they will be banished to darkness
    and there they will fall.
I will bring disaster on them
    in the year they are punished,’
declares the Lord.
