How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water: Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.
Jerusalem is no longer a city of faithfulness, justice, and righteousness. It is now a city full of harlots and a refuge for murderers. Its best things have been corrupted and its princes are scoundrels. Everywhere, there is bribery and injustice.
