Jeremiah 23:11

For both prophet and priest are profane
Being guilty of the afore mentioned sins. The Targum is,

``the scribe and the priest;''
and such were the scribes and priests in the time of our Lord; they played "the hypocrite" F17, as some render the word here; and are often charged with the sin of hypocrisy, and called hypocrites, (Matthew 22:18) (23:13-15,23,25,27,29) ; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the Lord;
where they officiated in holy things, or should have done so; where the one should have instructed the people, and the other offered sacrifices for them, according to the will of God; there they committed wickedness, which was an aggravation of their sin, as was the case of Eli's sons, (1 Samuel 2:22-24) ; perhaps the same sin was committed by these men; or idolatry may be meant; setting up images, and building altars for them in the house of God; see (Jeremiah 7:30) ; or carrying on traffic and merchandise, whereby the temple was made a house of merchandise, as it was in the times of Christ, (John 2:14-16) .
