Will those who do evil never learn? They eat up my people like bread and wouldn't think of praying to the LORD.
When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.
The LORD comes forward to pronounce judgment on the elders and rulers of his people: "You have ruined Israel, my vineyard. Your houses are filled with things stolen from the poor.

You have murdered many in this city and filled its streets with the dead.
"Therefore, this is what the Sovereign LORD says: This city is an iron pot all right, but the pieces of meat are the victims of your injustice. As for you, I will soon drag you from this pot.
Fill it with choice pieces of meat--the rump and the shoulder and all the most tender cuts.
