Thou art the land that is not cleansed

Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the
land that is not cleansed, nor rained
upon in the day of indignation.
There is a conspiracy of her prophets in
the midst thereof, like a roaring lion
ravening the prey; they have devoured
souls; they have taken the treasure and
precious things; they have made her
many widows in the midst thereof.
Her priests have violated my law, and
have profaned mine holy things: they
have put no difference between the holy
and profane, neither have they shewed
difference between the unclean and the
clean, and have hid their eyes from my
sabbaths, and I am profaned among
them.
Her princes in the midst thereof are like
wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood,
and to destroy souls, to get dishonest
gain.
And her prophets have daubed them
with untempered morter, seeing vanity,
and divining lies unto them, saying,
Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the
LORD hath not spoken.
The people of the land have used
oppression, and exercised robbery, and
have vexed the poor and needy: yea,
they have oppressed the stranger
wrongfully.
And I sought for a man among them,
that should make up the hedge, and
stand in the gap before me for the land,
that I should not destroy it: but I found
none.
Therefore have I poured out mine
indignation upon them; I have
consumed them with the fire of my
wrath: their own way have I
recompensed upon their heads, saith
the Lord GOD.
