Ezekiel 22:1-31, NLT
The Sins of Jerusalem
1Now this message came to me from the Lord:
6“Every leader in Israel who lives within your walls is bent on murder.
13“But now I clap my hands in indignation over your dishonest gain and bloodshed.
The Lord’s Refining Furnace
17Then this message came to me from the Lord:
The Sins of Israel’s Leaders
23Again a message came to me from the Lord:
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.
