Hosea 4:2-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
2 Swearing, lying, murder,
stealing and adultery break out;
bloodshed follows bloodshed.
3 Therefore the land dries up,
and everything that dwells in it languishes:
The beasts of the field,
the birds of the air,
and even the fish of the sea perish.
Guilt of Priest and of People
4 But let no one accuse, let no one rebuke;
with you is my dispute, priest!
