Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter 32 – verses 11 – 20

robes of the High Priest
Israel’s mantle (robe; role; responsibilty is to lead and instruct the “family-of-man” in righteousness.

11. The arrogance (pomposity; conceit; disdain; vanity; self-importance; stiff-necked ways; presumptuousness) of Salt Lake’s people (priesthood-leadership) encourages Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) to revere (worship; idolize; pay tribute to; be afraid of; bend-the-knee before) a bunch of angry  (hostile; cross; indignant) prophets and apostles,  who are at-the-reins ( in the drivers seat; on the throne; at the helm; at the wheel) of Mormon power in Salt Lake City. They are stripping-off  (plundering; appropriating; stealing; robbing) the “robes” (mantles; roles)  of royalty from of Israel’s people while they cause Israel’s people to disregard their covenantal obligations  to Jehovah. They habituate Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)  to assist  Salt Lake as it divests (strips; plunders) Israel’s people of their robe (mantle calling; duty; mission) then they deliver them  (relinquish-them ; handing them over; surrender-them) into the hands (power; authority;  control; influence) of Salt Lake’s prophets,  upon (after;  consequent to)  their baptism in the Mormon church.

beat their breasts
To beat one’s breasts means: to strike one’s fisst against one’s chest as an expression of sorrow, anger, or woe. Hardly anyone actually beats their breast any more, but the expression survives as a poetic expression that describes any act of public bewailing. 

12. Salt Lake’ top priesthood leaders are “Beating-their-Breasts” (striking their  fists against their chests as an expression of sorrow, anger, or woe. Hardly anyone actually beats their breast any more, but the expression survives as a poetic expression that describes any act of public bewailing) and “tear-out-their-hair” (express tearful dramatic concern and agitation ) over their grounds (rationale; pretext; excuse) and about their priestly-expertise (prowess; expert skill in priestcraft) and especially about their coveted  (highly-sought-after-without-regard for the rights of others) wrongly-desired) authority (dominion; supremacy ; sovereignty; authority; jurisdiction) over Israelite (rank and file Mormon) vines (lineages; families; dynasties; bloodlines) which are highly fruitful (profitable; profit-making; bankable; lucrative) to the “Corporation of the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints”

FYI -” What we think of as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints operates today as a mere trademark of the corporation that owns the name to it. The actual church that used to go by that name, and which claims Jesus Christ as its head, does not exist today in any legally recognized form.  The no longer even exists…at all”.

reveling
Salt Lake’s top-church leaders and their wives are reveling and celebrating because of the plight (predicament; quandry; trouble; bind) that Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons ) are in.

13. Indeed (if truth be told),  for many years, loathsome thorns (Salt Lake’s  appointments as Israel’s royalty) have been rising-up (ascending; arising) higher than (greater in power and authority than) the daughters (branches; clans) of Israel.  They are reveling (rejoicing; partying; celebrating) in Salt Lake (at Mormon Church Headquarters)  over the plight (troubles; predicaments; dilemmas; difficulties) of Jehovah’s sheep (followers; lambs).

.

.

14. Indeed (as a matter of fact) the men occupying the citadel (Salt Lake headquarters) have totally forsaken (deserted) their posts as “watchers” (lookouts) on behalf of Israel’s people . They are neglecting  (disregarding; discounting; turning a blind eye to;  paying no attention to) the tower (position with the best view;  elevated-station guarded by a “watch” for danger or trouble) but rather,  they  are looking-forward (expecting;  anticipating) to  be surrounded (bound; encompassed) by a profligate (depraved; lascivious; reprobate) band (gang; company) of confederates (accomplices; partners-in-crime; co-conspirators; collaborators) forever while delighting in the “whiteness” (appearance-of-righteousness) seen among wild-asses (donkeys; jack-asses),  which “whiteness”  (appearance-of-righteousness ) is cheerfully sold (bought and sold) at the Mormon-sanctuaries (Mormon-temples) presided over by Mormon high-priests who’ve been forsaken (abandoned; deserted) by the God of Israel.

wasteland
Salt Lake’s high-priests are waiting for  “The Spirit” of “Ownership-Over-Everyone-Else; Lordship-Over-Everyone-Else; Mastery-Over-Everyone-Else”, i.e.  Baal  (the God of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership) , to be poured out upon everyone and everything so their miserable “No-Mans-Land”  (inhospitable-kingdom; uninhabitable-kingdom; confusion; uncultivated-wasteland; No-man’s land) will be magically transformed into a “Bed of Roses” (but…….Don’t hold your breath!”).  

15. They are waiting-around for  “The Spirit” of “Ownership; Lordship ; Mastery-Over-Everyone-Else”, i.e.  Baal  (the only God of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership) , to be poured out upon everyone and everything and their miserable wilderness (inhospitable-kingdom; uninhabitable-kingdom; confusion; uncultivated-wasteland; No-man’s land) to be magically transformed into a “Bed of Roses” (Don’t hold your breath!”) and that “Bed-of-Roses” will morph into a fruitful-field (“goldmine”; potentially prifitable chunk of real estate),  or so they think (hope; reckon). But not one of them is holding his breath in anticipation!

wilderness
Though they are unaware……Salt Lake’s priesthood leaders have unwittingly prepared for themselves and their families,   an eternal-state of emptiness and bewilderment.

16. Actrually, …..though they are unaware……they’ve actually  prepared  for themselves  and their families…. a lonely and desolate  wilderness and an eternal  state of utter bewilderment (emptiness) because of the God of Israel’s punishment (judgment; condemnation),  while  “Righteousness” (those of good-character; righteousness’s rightful possessors) will dwell in a fertile-field (“Bed-of-Roses”; fruitful-situations; fruitful-circumstance) that is fed and secured forever.

.

 

righteousness
Like Abraham before them,  Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)  will become my ministers (ambassadors; representatives; envoys) of “Righteousness”(goodness; integrity; nobility) and peace ( wholeness; friendship; harmony),  pointing  (directing attention) to tranquility (serenity; rest; peace) and confidence (God’s loving-assurance) throughout eternity.

17. They (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) are possessors of  (have wrought)  “righteousness” (what-is-right; the birthright; what is good), so they will be my ministers (ambassadors; representatives; envoys) of “Righteousness”(what is right; what is true) and of peace (friendship; harmony) pointing the way (showing-the-way)  to tranquility (serenity; rest; peace) and confidence (God’s loving-assurance) throughout eternity.

“Peaceful Habitations for Israel’s people”

18. My people (Israel’s descendants; Israel’s successors) will reign (wear-the-crown) at rest (pleasantly; in-comfort; well; warmly) ,  in “peaceful-habitations” (happy-homes; quiet-residences; peaceful-societies; tranquil-circumstances) along with  others who have received a “sure-hope” (divine assurance) for themselves in an undisturbed (unmolested; irrevocable)  place of eternal rest (repose).

19. But, hailstones (pellets of frozen rain) will come-forth (rain-down; come-down-from heaven;  appear; arrive; come into view) to level  (crush; asuash; trample; break; overpower) the tangled-thickets  of Salt Lake’s family-trees and flatten their City.

calumniate
Calumniating Jesus – He was slandered; bad-mouthed and insulted, and Pilate knew how much the Jews (the Jewish high-priests) hated Jesus!

20. The God of Israel blesses all of you (all of Israel’s people; all rank and file Mormons) far and above (exceeding; especially; surmounting; overtaking; overshadowing) everyone (anyone) in the West (LDS Church headquarters in Salt Lake City) because they have divorced (disunited; severed) themselves from Jehovah in order to  calumniate (slander; bad-mouth;insult; libel; defame; bear false tales about; revile) My (Jehovah’s)  princes and princesses (royalty;  rulers; Israelites who possess God’s authority) so they can promote (advance; introduce; recommend; advocate; boost; support) Canaanite (subjugation) worship.  

Reading Isaiah’s Mind- Chapter Twenty Two – verses 1 – 12**

A prophecy about Jerusalem

The name Jerusalem is a combination of two distinct words (1) “Jeru” is derived from the Hebrew root-verb Yara meaning: toImage result for Jerusalem instruct; to teach and as a noun: instruction; teachings; proclamation, and (2)  “Salem” originating from shalom –pronounced shaw-lome, meaning: “peace and salvation”; welfare; friendship; wholeness; soundness.   Combined, the two words express the concept of: “teachings of peace and Salvation”. 

Geographically,  the place-name “Jerusalem” pinpoints (identifies; locates; distinguishes) the ancient headquarters for the Jehovah cult (worship) and religion. Jehovah is the exclusive  (one and only)  God of Israel’s people. Jerusalem is sometimes also used as a synonym for Zion, although Zion’s precise definition is:  “Israelite seed who’ve endured 40 years wandering in a personal desert,  while looking for Jehovah and his truth”. Zion is derived from the Hebrew root verb tziyah-pronounced tsee-yaw– meaning: parched-wilderness; drought; aridity; dry-place; barren; to be dried up.     But, it also means “Vessels (humans who possess an angelic spirit) in order to demonstrate a divine quality by his/her acts and appearance”.  Zion is found almost exclusively in poetry,  whereas, Jerusalem is found in both poetry and prose.  Jerusalem (“the teachings of Peace and Salvation”) contains (holds-within-it; carries-within-it; accommodates; seats-within-it)  “The Word of God” especially for the House of Israel.   Scholars have defined Jerusalem (“the teachings of Peace and Salvation”) as the “Navel” (umbilicus; source of nourishment) of the infant (fledgling; emergent; developing; new; embryonic; nascent) world.  In (on account of; by reason of)  Jerusalem (“the teachings of Peace and Salvation”), Israel’s first (foremost) family (lineage; dynasty) was established (inaugurated;begun or introduced ) thru Solomon (“an inclination to avoid argument or violent conflict; “peace-making”) as a means to accommodate (quarter; shelter;  house; fit in with the needs of) the “Word-of-God” contained within the  “Ark-of-the-Covenant”.

In Jerusalem (“the teachings of Peace and Salvation”), Jehovah established his Law (binding rules of Related imageconduct enforced by Jehovah’s authority). Jerusalem (“teachings of Peace and Salvation”) is (constitute)  Israel’s official  (real) capital (estate).  Israel’s prophets are the beneficiaries (heirs; grantees; inheritors;  recipients) of the “Word-of-God”.  The  “Word-of-God” was adopted (espoused; embraced) as  Judah’s  “Law” (rule of conduct, which is of binding legal force) by faithful Jews (Judahites) worldwide.    The Law of God has served as the Divine command  (guidance; instruction) for/to Judahites since the Old Testament era.  Salt Lake’s prophets and apostles claim that Jehovah took (removed; withdrew) His “Authority” and His “Word” from the earth following the death of the last living New Testament apostle of Jesus Christ. This withdrawal, they maintain, precipitated (caused; resulting in; gave rise to)  the “Dark-Ages”.  Salt Lake’s priesthood authorities hope to convince Israelites throughout the world that the Melchizedek Priesthood Authority is the same authority that God withdrew (took awayremoved) subsequent to (in the wake of) the death of the last New Testament apostle. This Salt Lake premise (assumption that legitimizes) is a lie! (mockery; falsehood; untruth)  Jehovah has taken (removed; withdrawn) neither His “Authority” nor His “Word” from the earth.    His “Word” (command; counsel; instruction) still remains recorded in the Old-Testament (Torah; Pentateuch) and has been circulated for centuries throughout the world unto the Family of Man (“Descendants-of-Adam”).  However, His (Jehovah’s) words have been imprecisely (inaccurately; incorrectly; inexactly) translated.  As a result,  “Truth” has been unavailable   (marred; unattainable; unaccessable) because it’s been shrouded in mystery and replaced by (mistakes (inaccuracies; errors; misinterpretations). Isaiah’s Prophetic assignment (commission; function) was to “make a legal case against “ (argue for  “arrest and “prosecution” of)  the powerful worldwide Melchizedek Priesthood Organization in Salt Lake City, during the Latter-days   The “Words that Jehovah originally reveal to his Old Testament prophets must be returned to propper order.   Additionally , because Jehovah’s words have often been, more or less consistently, translated without the aid of divine-enlightenment (divine-insight; the Holy Spirit), much of what we have today and consider to be “Holy-Writ” is no longer holy. It has been altered by (1)  well-meaning, but uninspired translators,  and (2)  dark-minded men who seek to claim attention, authority,  and power for themselves. This author’s assignment (commission) is to correctly re-arrange and translate Isaiah’s words.  When this is accomplished, Isaiah’s words become extraordinarily clear and profoundly podiscourses; sermons) ignant (moving; effective; disturbing).    Salt Lake’s prophets claim (maintain; insist) that “their” words (talks; discourses; proclamations) are God’s words and that what they declare (speak; say) from the pulpit is to be axceepted as the” Word of God” specifically for our latter-day generation.  As far as Salt Lake is concerned, the words (counsel; advise; commands) spoken by them  supersede (override; overrule; replace; supplant; set-aside; annul; take the place of) the Old Testament Words of Jehovah, contained in the Ark of the Covenant and in the Old Testament Torah (instruction).Image result for fraud Salt Lake’s presiding officers are accused of fraud. *

(1) * Fraud  – “A knowing (intentional; deliberate) misrepresentation of the truth or the concealment of a material fact to induce another to act to his or her own detriment. (2) A misrepresentation made recklessly without belief in its truth to induce another to act. (3) Unconscionable dealing esp. in contract (covenantal; legally-binding) law; unfair use of power arising from the parties (ones who take part in the covenantal contract) relative positions and resulting in an unconscionable bargain. – Black’s Law Dictionary eighth Edition 2004.

1. What troubles (causes distress or anxiety within)  you (Salt Lake Priesthood Authorities), that clearly Image result for look-away gifshow the existence or truth of  you must (need to) resort to (turn-to; adopt) affectations  (facades; pretentions; “airs”; posturing) to demonstrate (clearly show the existence or truth of) your innocence?    Your defenses (justifications explanations) are ridiculous (deserving derision and mockery; absurd).   Because of this,  I (Jehovah) declare (say command; tell)  to all of you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons), you must “Look-away!” (turn-away; keep-away; stay-away) from this generation of Salt Lake’s ambassadors.  Because of them, your God (teacher; master) is pained (irritated; exasperated; provoked) unto tears (weeping). Don’t try to console me (Jehovah) concerning the destruction of my daughters (Israelite devotees; devoted-worshippers) by Salt Lake’s Prophets and apostles.

not slain by the sword
Israelites do not die (expire; stop living; pass-away) because of the sword (cutting-instrument; penetrating force) of truth and Israelites do not perish because they battle (ignore; fight; deny; obstruct; oppose)  the sword (“incisive truth”).  

2. Oh, Salt Lake City, You are “ripe” (ready; due) for destruction. You’re a city (settlement) that will be (must beImage result for celebrate gif; needs to be; is destined to be; should be) upended (turned-upside-down; overturned;  overthrown) by Jehovah.  You’re a city filled with Mormon General Authorities who are reveling (celebrating) because of all the Israelites they’ve profaned (desecrated; violated; defiled).  But, unlike Salt Lake’s priesthood leaders,  Israelites are not slain (overcome; pierced; penetrated; cut to the quick) by the sword (penetrating force of “truth”) and Israelites do not perish because they battle (fight; ignore; fight; deny; obstruct; oppose; wage war against; deny) the truth.

3. Salt Lake has “arrested” (seized by  authority and taken into custody) all of Israel’s commanders (tribal-chief’s)  along with a major part of Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) in one fell swoop  (all at onceImage result for strain of the bow gif time) in-order-to package (bundle present; merchandise) them  in an attractive way bearing-in-mind (keeping in mind; remembering; warned by; in deference to ) Salt Lake’s “Old-White-Men” (presiding Authorities)  who’ve  driven-away (rejected; repulsed; excluded; ignored)  Israel’s people by-remote-control (without-physical-contact) ,  from a-far-away-place  (Salt Lake City, Utah).

On account of this,  I say (declare), “Turn yourselves away from this generation of Salt Lake boasters (blowhards, braggarts; vaunters; egotists, swellheads; conceited-and-self-centered-men) who are emoting (play-acting; feigning) crocodile-tears (tears or expressions of sorrow that are insincere).

wall of.....
Jericho’s Wall: Walls block (make an entrance or forward movement impossible). Exclusivity creates a wall (division; separation; ) that obstructs “outsiders” (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons). Corruption creates a wall  (obstruction; blockade; a barrier), which blocks justice. Mormon Bishops constitute a wall (division; blockade)  beyond which Israelites (rank and file Mormons) are not allowed to seek an appeal (a retrial;  a re-examination). As a result, Salt Lake’s presiding Authorities seldom,  if ever, have a to deal directly (personally; face to face) with Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons).

5. Indeed (if truth be told)  this day (era; period; time) of destruction (wreckage; ruin) and turmoil (upheaval) is  ordained  (appointed; consecrated) by Jehovah, The Lord (master; commander) of the Hosts ( heavenly-armies; heavenly-forces) for the benefit of Israelites (rank and file Mormions) enduring (persevering-in-spite-of)  the “Valley of Vision” (Salt Lake Valley that is supposed to be filled with revelation and visions). They (“heavenly-armies; heavenly-forces”) are breaking-down (dissembling; dismantling; ending; putting an end to) the wall (prejudice; class-consciousness; caste system) promoted by Salt Lake’s leaders and asking Almighty-God for help (assist) so they may  “point-the-finger-at” (formally accuse; bring criminal charges against) all of Salt Lake’s exalted (deified; high-ranking; illustrious; prestigious; renowned) Melchizedek priesthood authorities

snobbery
Did you know the “Snobbery” is the belief that there is a direct correlation between “social-status” and “human-worth”

6. These men are neglecting (disregarding; ignoring; forgetting ) to lift up the souls of Israel’s people,  because of a desire (predisposition; predilection; proclivity; fondness) for using incantations (enchantments; magic-spells; chants; magic-powers) against them,  so they may bring-forth (generate; breed; create; organize; multiply; give-rise-to) Bishoprics (unions and associations formed for mutual benefit; alliances for combined-action; coalitions) of Melchizedek-High-priests dedicated (determined; working; sworn; given over to; devoted) to dispersing (scattering; disbanding; demobilizing; dissolving; dis-orienting) Israel’s people while committing (pledging; dedicating) Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) to Salt Lake’s fortress (headquarters; citadel; bastion; stronghold).     Salt Lake’s headquarters  is surrounded (circumscribed; encompassed; enclosed; encircled) a fortified (reinforced) “Wall” (prejudice; class-distinction; caste system; pretense) of “Snobbery” (pomposity; belief in a direct-correlation between social-status and human-worth),  designed and built to overthrow (invalidate; remove; abrogate; get-rid-of) Israel’s  family-crest  (rank; pedigree; heraldry; “coat of arms”; reputation; hedge).

7.  Salt Lake’s General Authorities  deliberately (eagerly; purposefully ; knowingly; intentionally) choose (commission; appoint; select; favor; “call”; show preference for) snobs (Priesthood authorities who imitate, cultivate, and slavishly admire social superiors and are condescending and overbearing toward others) just like this,  so Salt Lake canImage result for alienation synonym fire-with-enthusiasm   (incentivize)  their Bishoprics (Salt Lake’s secret combinations of men formed to give Israelites and rank and file Mormons  “THREE-FATHER-FIGURES” unto whom Israel’s people will eagerly submit themselves) .  because these men epitomize (embody) Salt Lake’s “image” (outward-appearance; form, and inward emptiness)  of Salt Lake’s idols (celebrities; icons; darlings; pets; heroes; superstars) who ,  having in mind (determined; thinking; hoping)  the intoxication  (befuddlement; bewilderment; dumbfounding; muddling; addling; confusion; inebriation) of any Israelite (rank and file Mormon) among the congregation, who might be inclined (has the idea to; has the courage to)  point-to (point-out;  draw attention to; call-attention-to)  Israel’s alienation (exclusion; isolation) at the hands of Salt Lake’s leadership.

8.  Salt Lake consistently “black-balls” (blacklists; ostracizes; embargos; imposes an official ban on) Judah’s people for any leadership positions, having-in-mind (to mimic; to pretend; to mock) the wine (spirit) that is so distinctive (unique; exclusive) of/to the tribe of Judah. ,  Then Salt Lake authorizesImage result for beating of a dead horse (commissions; mandates) “idle-talk”  (chatter; blather; prattle worthless words; braggadocio; nonsense)  to be spoken (uttered; expounded; sermonized; pontificated)  from Mormon pulpits (towers; illustrious Melchizedek Priesthood Leaders to congregations) throughout the world. “Idle-talk” spoken by Salt Lake’s presiding Melchizedek Priesthood leaders is not meant to lead Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) to Jehovah. Rather, their “talks” and discourses are carefully composed (formulated; drafted) to point (direct everyone’s eye; focus everyone’s attention; focus everyone’s mind) upon the speaker and his/her alleged (“so-called”; professed; unproven; supposed)  love (kinship; fondness; regard) for the House (lineage; dynasty; family; bloodline) of Israel.  But,  Israel’s tribal chief’s are beginning to point (direct-everyone’s-attention) to the redundancy (“gilding-of-the-lily”; repetition; “beating of a dead horse”; talk-after-talk-after-talk) characterized by Mormon-leadership Lake City (Mormon Church headquarters; the Melchizedek Priesthood Organization).

shake the hand
This is how Mormon Priesthood Authorities are: “taking them by the hand” (welcoming-them; gathering-them-in), having in mind (wanting; having an eye on) the prosperity that underlies (is fundamental to; is the foundation of; is the basis of ) the pegs (Mormon prophets seers and revelators) , to which this generation of Melchizedek high-priests are pointing (directing everyone’s attention).  

9. Then,  having in mind (desiring; wanting; deciding; determining; thinking; hoping; wanting), to be the best   (most-famous; most-celebrated;  “most-acclaimed ) divider (shield; cloak; hedge; cover; screen; cloak) to come from Salt Lake City.”  These men want to be viewed (recognized; certified; accepted; appreciated; realized) acknowledged; regarded; estimated) by rank and file Mormons, as  masters (rabbi’s; great leaders; excellent teachers)  while  “taking-them-by-the-hand” (gathering-them-in; welcoming-them ), having in mind, (wanting; coveting; having an eye on;  wanting to get hold of; greedy for; envying) the prosperity underneath (supporting; reinforcing; propping-up) Salt Lake’s “Pegs” (prophets and apostles; prophets and apostles upon whom the people depend), toward  whom this generation is pointing (directing everyone’s attention).

10.  These have-in-mind (have an eye on) the daughters  (faithful followers; devoted disciples; ) of Jerusalem (teachings of peace and Salvation), in the hopes of scoring (stealing; attracting; luring) all of Jerusalem’s daughters (faithful-followers; devoted-disciples) away from Jehovah.   Finally,  they authorize (enable;Image result for ranking system empower) all over again (yet a second time) the exile (banishment) of Israel’s house (people lineage; dynasty; bloodline) from the royal throne which lawfully and legally belongs to them.  They are doing this as a means to clip-off (get rid of;  isolate; stop; cut-off; interrupt; prevent;  discourage; thwart) all Israelites (rank and file Mormons) who might be aware (awake; conscious; alert) enough to behold (recognize; point-to; direct-everyone’s-attention) to Salt Lake’s “Wall” (prejudicial thinking; class-distinction; social-stratification; caste-system; ranking-system) by which Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)  are separated from leadership and ranked one above the other according to their social status and their Melchizedek priesthood Authority.

11. Next, Salt Lake created (stirred-up; inspired; generated; provoked; instigated)  a hope (wish;Image result for nodding off gif ambition; aspiration; desire) in the hearts and minds of Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) to become distinguished (well-known; famous; renowned; celebrated; important) by General Authorities at Salt Lake’s  citadel (stronghold; bastion; church-headquarters; fortified-place) and enjoy the flow of blessings (prosperity; good-fortune) that are so typical of  so many Mormon priesthood leaders.   Behold  (something unexpected, but could have been predicted) But…..hold-on……. Salt Lake’s leaders have “fallen-asleep” (begun to celebrate a day of rest: begun to rest; begun to take-a-nap; begun to doze; begun to snooze; begun to nod-off), but none of you (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) are aware (alert; angry; aroused) enough to vociferate (express-your-opinion; complain) about it,  as if “doing so” is somehow against the Will (desires; testament) of-God or that it is unrighteous-behavior (sinful) to find fault with priesthood leaders from a faraway place (Salt Lake City).

Sack cloth and ashes
Sackcloth is a symbol of repentance and grief. Wearing sackcloth, like shaving one’s head,  is a sign of total humiliation.

12. The Lord, God of Hosts, himself,  is summoning (calling; inviting) all of Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) today (right now; during these last days) to weep (mourn) and to “beat-their-breasts” (strike their fists against their chests as an expression of sorrow, anger, or woe) on behalf of the House of Israel and to admit (confess; acknowledge their shame and foolish, publicly, by debasing themselves,  and he expects them to gird (encircle; wrap; surround)  themselves with sackcloth (“A Sign-of-Repentance”).
