1 雅各的首領,以色列家的官長啊,你們要!你們不當知道公平麼?

2 你們惡善惡,從人身上剝,從人骨頭上剔肉,

3 我民的,剝他們的,打折他們的骨頭,分成塊子像要下,又像釜中的

4 到了遭災的時候,這些人必哀求耶和華,他卻不應允他們。那時他必照他們所行的惡事向他們掩面。

5 論到使我民走差先知─他們牙齒有所嚼的,他們就呼喊:平安了!凡不供他們吃的,他們就預備攻擊他(預備攻擊他:或譯必遭遇刀兵)─耶和華如此

6 你們必遭遇黑夜,以致不見異象;又必遭遇幽暗,以致不能占卜。日頭必向你們沉落,白晝變為黑暗。

7 先見必抱愧,占卜的必蒙羞,都必摀著嘴唇,因為不應允他們。

8 至於我,我藉耶和華的靈,滿有力量、公平、才能,可以向雅各說明他的過犯,向以色列指出他的惡。

9 雅各家的首領、以色列家的官長啊,當我的話!你們厭惡公平,在一切事上屈枉正直;

10 以人血建立錫安,以罪孽建造耶路撒冷

11 首領為賄賂行審判;祭司為雇價施訓誨;先知行占卜。他們卻倚賴耶和華耶和華不是在我們中間麼?災禍必不臨到我們

12 所以因你們的緣故,錫安必被耕種像一塊田,耶路撒冷必變為亂堆;這殿的必像叢林的處。
