Ezekiel 22:6-9 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

See! the princes of Israel within you use their power to shed blood.[a] Within you, father and mother are dishonored; they extort the resident alien in your midst; within you, they oppress orphans and widows. What I consider holy you have rejected, and my sabbaths you have desecrated. [b]In you are those who slander to cause bloodshed; within you are those who feast on the mountains; in your midst are those whose actions are depraved.

Footnotes:

  1. 22:6 To shed blood: a very serious charge in light of the solemn command of God to Noah in Gn 9:6 against human bloodshed.
  2. 22:9–11 The charges against Jerusalem echo the commandments of Lv 20:10–18.

Ezekiel 22:6-9 New International Version (NIV)

“‘See how each of the princes of Israel who are in you uses his power to shed blood. In you they have treated father and mother with contempt; in you they have oppressed the foreigner and mistreated the fatherless and the widow. You have despised my holy things and desecrated my Sabbaths. In you are slanderers who are bent on shedding blood; in you are those who eat at the mountain shrines and commit lewd acts.
