彌迦書3:1-3,9-12 (朱維之譯, 經潤修)
Listen, you rulers of Jacob,
You chiefs of the House of Israel!
For you ought to know what is right,
2But you hate good and love evil.
3You have devoured My people’s flesh;
You have flayed the skin off them,
And their flesh off their bones.
And after tearing their skins off them,
And their flesh off their bones,
And breaking their bones to bits,
You have cut it up as into a pot,
Like meat in a caldron.
9Hear this, you rulers of the House of Jacob,
You chiefs of the House of Israel,
Who detest justice
And make crooked all that is straight,
10Who build Zion with crime,
Jerusalem with iniquity!
11Her rulers judge for gifts,
Her priests give rulings for a fee,
And her prophets divine for pay;
Yet they rely upon the Lord, saying,
``The Lord is in our midst;
No calamity shall overtake us.''
12Assuredly, because of you
Zion shall be plowed as a field,
And Jerusalem shall become heaps of ruins,
And the Temple Mount
A shrine in the woods.
