The Future of Jerusalem

1 Woe to the city of oppressors,1 rebellious2 and defiled!3 2 She obeys4 no one, she accepts no correction.5 She does not trust6 in the LORD, she does not draw near7 to her God. 3 Her officials are roaring lions,8 her rulers are evening wolves,9 who leave nothing for the morning.10 4 Her prophets are arrogant; they are treacherous11 men. Her priests profane the sanctuary and do violence to the law.12 5 The LORD within her is righteous;13 he does no wrong.14 Morning by morning15 he dispenses his justice, and every new day he does not fail,16 yet the unrighteous know no shame.17 6 "I have cut off nations; their strongholds are demolished. I have left their streets deserted, with no one passing through. Their cities are destroyed;18 no one will be left--no one at all.
