פ (Pe) Zion spread out her hands, but there is no one to comfort her. The Lord has issued a decree against Jacob; his neighbors 1 have become his enemies. Jerusalem has become like filthy garbage 2 in their midst. 3
They rendered the beauty of his ornaments into pride, 1 and with it they made their abominable images – their detestable idols. Therefore I will render it filthy to them.
They will discard their silver in the streets, and their gold will be treated like filth. 1 Their silver and gold will not be able to deliver them on the day of the Lord’s fury. 2 They will not satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs because their wealth 3 was the obstacle leading to their iniquity. 4
