Her princes within her are roaring lions, Her judges are wolves at evening; They leave nothing for the morning.
The LORD is righteous within her; He will do no injustice. Every morning He brings His justice to light; He does not fail. But the unjust knows no shame.
"In that day you will feel no shame Because of all your deeds By which you have rebelled against Me; For then I will remove from your midst Your proud, exulting ones, And you will never again be haughty On My holy mountain.
"But I will leave among you A humble and lowly people, And they will take refuge in the name of the LORD .
The LORD has taken away His judgments against you, He has cleared away your enemies. The King of Israel, the LORD , is in your midst; You will fear disaster no more.
"The LORD your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.
