[Yet it happened] because of the sins of her prophets and the guilt of her priests, who shed the blood of the righteous within her.
Blind, they stumbled in the streets, defiled by this blood, so that no one dared to touch their garments.
"Stay away! Unclean!" people shouted at them. "Away, away! Don't touch [us]!" So they wandered aimlessly. It was said among the nations, "They can stay here no longer."
The LORD Himself has scattered them; He regards them no more. The priests are not respected; the elders find no favor.
