Isaiah 3:8-11


3:8 Jerusalem certainly stumbles,

Judah falls,

for their words and their actions offend the Lord; 1 

they rebel against his royal authority. 2 

3:9 The look on their faces 3  testifies to their guilt; 4 

like the people of Sodom they openly boast of their sin. 5 

Too bad for them! 6 

For they bring disaster on themselves.

3:10 Tell the innocent 7  it will go well with them, 8 

for they will be rewarded for what they have done. 9 

3:11 Too bad for the wicked sinners!

For they will get exactly what they deserve. 10
