4

Its prophets are reckless,

faithless persons;

its priests have profaned what is sacred,

they have done violence to the law.

Verses 1–7

The holy God hates sin most in those nearest to him. A sinful state is, and will be, a woful state. Yet they had the tokens of God's presence, and all the advantages of knowing his will, with the strongest reasons to do it; still they persisted in disobedience. Alas, that men often are more active in doing wickedness than believers are in doing good.
