An Ancient Text That Speaks to the American Present

Woe to her who is rebellious and polluted, To the oppressing city!  She has not obeyed His voice, She has not received correction; She has not trusted in the LORD, She has not drawn near to her God.  Her princes in her midst are roaring lions; Her judges are evening wolves That leave not a bone till morning. Her prophets are insolent, treacherous people; Her priests have polluted the sanctuary, They have done violence to the law.  The LORD is righteous in her midst, He will do no unrighteousness. Every morning He brings His justice to light; He never fails, But the unjust knows no shame. –  (Zeph. 3:1-5)

Let those who have ears, hear.
