Israel’s Sin Brings Suffering

I’m suffering very much!
    I’m like someone who gathers summer fruit in a vineyard
    after the good fruit has already been picked.
No grapes are left to eat.
    None of the early figs I long for remain.
Faithful people have disappeared from the land.
    Those who are honest are gone.
Everyone hides and waits
    to spill the blood of others.
    They use nets to try and trap one another.
They are very good at doing what is evil.
    Rulers require gifts.
Judges accept money from people
    who want special favors.
Those who are powerful
    always get what they want.
    All of them make evil plans together.
