princes:
"Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same. ... The old lion perisheth for lack of prey, and the stout lion's whelps are scattered abroad." {Job 4:8-11} + "He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor. ... He croucheth, [and] humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones." {Psa 10:8-10} + "[As] a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; [so is] a wicked ruler over the poor people." {Prv 28:15} + "Thy princes [are] rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them." {Isa 1:23} + "But thine eyes and thine heart [are] not but for thy covetousness, and for to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do [it]." {Jer 22:17} + "Behold, the princes of Israel, every one were in thee to their power to shed blood." {Ezk 22:6} + "[There is] a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. ... Her princes in the midst thereof [are] like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, [and] to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain." {Ezk 22:25-27} + "And I said, Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; [Is it] not for you to know judgment? ... Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings." {Mic 3:1-4} + "Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and princes of the house of Israel, that abhor judgment, and pervert all equity. ... The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, [Is] not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us." {Mic 3:9-11}
evening:
"Wherefore 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 goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, [and] their backslidings are increased." {Jer 5:6} + "Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle [that] hasteth to eat." {Hab 1:8}
