Zephaniah 3:1-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
1 Ah! Rebellious and polluted,
the tyrannical city!
2 It listens to no voice,
accepts no correction;
In the Lord it has not trusted,
nor drawn near to its God.
3 Its officials within it
are roaring lions;
Its judges are desert wolves
that have no bones to gnaw by morning.
4 Its prophets are reckless,
Its priests profane what is holy,
and do violence to the law.
