Isaiah 1:2; Isaiah 1:5; Isaiah 1:20; Isaiah 1:23; Isaiah 1:28

The Wickedness of Judah

gHear, O heavens, and give ear, O hearth;

for the Lord has spoken:

Children1 ihave I reared and brought up,

but they have rebelled against me.


Why will you still be ostruck down?

Why will you pcontinue to rebel?

The whole head is sick,

and the whole heart faint.


20  but if you refuse and rebel,

you shall be eaten by the sword;

qfor the mouth of the Lord has spoken.


23  Your princes are rebels

and companions of thieves.

Everyone uloves a bribe

and runs after gifts.

vThey do not bring justice to the fatherless,

and the widow’s cause does not come to them.


28  eBut rebels and sinners shall be broken together,

and those who forsake the Lord shall be consumed.
