Zephaniah 3:1-5

The Wickedness of Jerusalem

3Ah, soiled, defiled,
   oppressing city!
2 It has listened to no voice;
   it has accepted no correction.
It has not trusted in the Lord;
   it has not drawn near to its God.

3 The officials within it
   are roaring lions;
its judges are evening wolves
   that leave nothing until the morning.
4 Its prophets are reckless,
   faithless persons;
its priests have profaned what is sacred,
   they have done violence to the law.
5 The Lord within it is righteous;
   he does no wrong.
Every morning he renders his judgement,
   each dawn without fail;
   but the unjust knows no shame.
