Doom to those who call evil good and good evil, who present darkness as light and light as darkness, who make bitterness sweet and sweetness bitter.
Doom to those who consider themselves wise, who think of themselves as clever.
Doom to the wine-swigging warriors, mighty at mixing drinks,
who spare the guilty for bribes, and rob the innocent of their rights.
Therefore, as a tongue of fire devours stubble, and as hay shrivels in a flame, so their roots will rot, and their blossoms turn to dust, for they have rejected the teaching of the LORD of heavenly forces, and have despised the word of Israel's holy one.
