Bible: Ezek. 22:25-28
22:25 Her princes 1 within her are like a roaring lion tearing its prey; they have devoured lives. They take away riches and valuable things; they have made many women widows 2 within it. 22:26 Her priests abuse my law and have desecrated my holy things. They do not distinguish between the holy and the profane, 3 or recognize any distinction between the unclean and the clean. They ignore 4 my Sabbaths and I am profaned in their midst. 22:27 Her officials are like wolves in her midst rending their prey – shedding blood and destroying lives – so they can get dishonest profit. 22:28 Her prophets coat their messages with whitewash. 5 They see false visions and announce lying omens for them, saying, ‘This is what the sovereign
Lord says,’ when the Lord has not spoken.
