The Sins of Israel's Leaders
Today's Passage: Ezekiel 22:23-31
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Invite God to join you in your reading. Ask Him for wisdom.
If there is anything in your spirit hindering you, confess it now.
He knows it. You are forgiven.
Ask Him to help you embrace that truth to live it out.
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you, Omnipotent God for insight.

23. Again a message came to me from the LORD:
24. "Son of man, give the people of Israel this message: In the day of my indignation, you will be like a polluted land, a land without rain.
25. Your princes plot conspiracies just as lions stalk their prey. They devour innocent people, seizing treasures and extorting wealth. They make many widows in the land.
26. Your priests have violated my instructions and defiled my holy things. They make no distinction between what is holy and what is not. And they do not teach my people the difference betweeen what is ceremonially clean and unclean. They disregard my Sabbath days so that I am dishonored among them.
27. Your leaders are like wolves who tear apart their victims. They actually destroy people's lives for money!
18. And your prophets cover up for them by announcing false visions and making lying predictions. They say, 'My message is from the Sovereign LORD,' when the LORD hasn't spoken a single word to them.
29. Even common people oppress the poor, rob the needy, and deprive foreigners of justice.
30. "I looked for someone who might rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land. I searched for someone to stand in the gap in the wall so I wouldn't have to destroy the land, but I found no one.
31. So now I will pour out my fury on them, consuming them with fire of my anger. I will heap on their heads the full penalty for all their sins. I the Sovereign LORD, have spoken!"
Ezekiel 22;23-31 NLT
