New Living Translation
You rulers make decisions based on bribes; you priests teach God's laws only for a price; you prophets won't prophesy unless you are paid. Yet all of you claim to depend on the LORD. "No harm can come to us," you say, "for the LORD is here among us."
King James Bible
The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.
Darby Bible Translation
The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money; yet do they lean upon Jehovah, and say, Is not Jehovah in the midst of us? no evil shall come upon us.

Young's Literal Translation
Her heads for a bribe do judge, And her priests for hire do teach, And her prophets for silver divine, And on Jehovah they lean, saying, 'Is not Jehovah in our midst? Evil doth not come in upon us.'

The Sovereignty of God in Operation
The Doctrine of the Scriptures.
You who call yourselves Jews are relying on God's law, and you boast about your special relationship with him.
You are so proud of knowing the law, but you dishonor God by breaking it.
The wicked take secret bribes to pervert the course of justice.
Your leaders are rebels, the companions of thieves. All of them love bribes and demand payoffs, but they refuse to defend the cause of orphans or fight for the rights of widows.
They take bribes to let the wicked go free, and they punish the innocent.
even though you call yourself the holy city and talk about depending on the God of Israel, whose name is the LORD of Heaven's Armies.
Like greedy dogs, they are never satisfied. They are ignorant shepherds, all following their own path and intent on personal gain.
