The Lord’s People Confess Their Sin

Poor me!
    I am like those gathering summer fruit,
        like those picking grapes.
            But there aren’t any grapes to eat
                or any ripened figs that I crave.
Faithful people are gone from the earth,
    and no one is decent.
    All people lie in ambush to commit murder.
    They trap each other with nets.
        Their hands are skilled in doing evil.
            Officials ask for gifts.
            Judges accept bribes.
            Powerful people dictate what they want.
                So they scheme together.[a]
