Look, a righteous king is coming! And honest princes will rule under him.
Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a parched land.
Then everyone who has eyes will be able to see the truth, and everyone who has ears will be able to hear it.
Even the hotheads will be full of sense and understanding. Those who stammer will speak out plainly.
In that day ungodly fools will not be heroes. Scoundrels will not be respected.
For fools speak foolishness and make evil plans. They practice ungodliness and spread false teachings about the . They deprive the hungry of food and give no water to the thirsty.
The smooth tricks of scoundrels are evil. They plot crooked schemes. They lie to convict the poor, even when the cause of the poor is just.
