Seers[a] will be put to shame.
Those who practice witchcraft will be disgraced.
    All of them will cover their faces, because God won’t answer them.

But I am filled with the power of the Lord’s Spirit,
    with justice, and with strength.
So I will tell the descendants of Jacob about their crimes
    and the nation of Israel about its sins.

Listen to this, you leaders of the descendants of Jacob,
    you rulers of the nation of Israel.
        You despise justice and pervert everything that is right.

But as for me, I am filled with power,

    and with justice and might,
to declare to Jacob his transgression,
    to Israel his sin.(F)

Hear this, you leaders of Jacob,
    you rulers of Israel,
who despise justice
    and distort all that is right;(G)
