Micah 3:9 - 3:12

Now hear this, heads of the house of Jacob
And rulers of the house of Israel,
Who abhor justice
And twist everything that is straight,
Who build Zion with bloodshed
And Jerusalem with violent injustice.
Her heads pronounce judgment for a bribe,
And her priests instruct for a price,
And her prophets divine for money.
Yet they lean on Yahweh saying,
“Is not Yahweh in our midst?
Evil will not come upon us.”
Therefore, on account of you
Zion will be plowed as a field;
Jerusalem will become a heap of ruins,
And the mountain of the house of God will become high places of a forest.
