Roles Wicked Official
In City, How The
Roles wicked official The Lord said: Ezekiel, son of man, tell the people of Israel that their country is full of sin, and that I, the Lord, am furious! Their leaders are like roaring lions, tearing apart their victims.
They put people to death, then steal everything of value. Husbands are killed, and many women are left as widows. The priests of Israel ignore my Law! Not only do they refuse to respect any of my sacred things, but they dont even
the difference between what is sacred and what is ordinary, or between what is clean and what is unclean.
They treat my Sabbath like any other day, and so my own people no longer honor me. Israels officials are like ferocious wolves, ripping their victims apart. They make a dishonest living by injuring and killing people. And then the prophets in Israel cover up these sins by
giving false visions.
I have never spoken to them, but they lie and say they have a message from me. The people themselves cheat and rob; they abuse the poor and take advantage of foreigners.
I looked for someone to defend the city and to protect it from my anger, as well as to stop me from destroying it. But I found no one. So in my fierce anger, I will punish the Israelites for what they have done, and they will know that I am furious. I, the Lord, have spoken Ezekiel 22:23-31
