She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction;a she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God.3
Her princeswithin her are roaringlions; her judges are eveningwolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.4
Her prophets are light and treacherouspersons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law.5
The justLORD is in the midst thereof; he will not doiniquity:everymorning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but the unjustknoweth no shame.6
I have cut off the nations: their towersb are desolate ; I made their streetswaste , that none passeth by : their cities are destroyed , so that there is no man, that there is none inhabitant .
I said , Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receiveinstruction; so their dwelling should not be cut off , howsoeverIpunished them: but they rose early , and corrupted all their doings.8
Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierceanger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.9
For then will I turn to the people a purelanguage,c that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with oneconsent.10
From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, even the daughter of my dispersed , shall bring mine offering.11
In that day shalt thou not be ashamed for all thy doings, wherein thou hast transgressed against me: for then I will take away out of the midst of thee them that rejoice in thy pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holymountain.12
I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poorpeople, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD.
