Context
No One is Just

1Run you to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if you can find a man, if there be any that executes judgment, that seeks the truth; and I will pardon it. 2And though they say, The LORD lives; surely they swear falsely. 3O LORD, are not your eyes on the truth? you have stricken them, but they have not grieved; you have consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return. 4Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their God. 5I will get me to the great men, and will speak to them; for they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds. 6Why a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goes out there shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased. 7How shall I pardon you for this? your children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses. 8They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbor's wife. 9Shall I not visit for these things? said the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this? 10Go you up on her walls, and destroy; but make not a full end: take away her battlements; for they are not the LORD's. 11For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, said the LORD. 12They have belied the LORD, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come on us; neither shall we see sword nor famine: 13And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done to them.
