The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death.
The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant.
You burn with lust among the oaks and under every spreading tree; you sacrifice your children in the ravines and under the overhanging crags.
I brought you into a fertile land to eat its fruit and rich produce. But you came and defiled my land and made my inheritance detestable.
