And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness, the faithful city."
Zion shall be redeemed by justice, and those in her who repent, by righteousness.
But rebels and sinners shall be destroyed together, and those who forsake the LORD shall be consumed.
For you shall be ashamed of the oaks in which you delighted; and you shall blush for the gardens which you have chosen.
For you shall be like an oak whose leaf withers, and like a garden without water.
And the strong shall become tow, and his work a spark, and both of them shall burn together, with none to quench them.
