The Justice of God’s Judgment

5Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it.H7751H2351H3389H7200H3045H1245H7339H4672H376H3426H6213H4941H1245H530H5545 2And though they say, The LORD liveth; surely they swear falsely.H559H3068H2416H7650H8267 3O LORD, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.H3068H5869H530H5221H2342H3615H3985H3947H4148H6440H2388H5553H3985H7725 4Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their God.H559H1800H2973H3045H1870H3068H4941H430 5I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds.H3212H1419H1696H3045H1870H3068H4941H430H3162H7665H5923H5423H4147 6Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased.H738H3293H5221H2061H6160H7703H5246H8245H5892H3318H2007H2963H6588H7231H4878H6105 7How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then committed adultery, and assembled themselves by troops in the harlots' houses.H335H5545H2063H1121H5800H7650H3808H430H7650H5003H1413H2181H1004 8They were as fed horses in the morning: every one neighed after his neighbour's wife.H2109H5483H7904H376H6670H7453H802 9Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: and shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?H6485H5002H3068H5315H5358H1471 10Go ye up upon her walls, and destroy; but make not a full end: take away her battlements; for they are not the LORD's.H5927H8284H7843H6213H3617H5493H5189H3068 11For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the LORD.H1004H3478H1004H3063H898H898H5002H3068 12They have belied the LORD, and said, It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine:H3584H3068H559H7451H935H7200H2719H7458 13And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them.H5030H7307H1696H6213 14Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.H559H3068H430H6635H1696H1697H5414H1697H6310H784H5971H6086H398 15Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the LORD: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say.H935H1471H4801H1004H3478H5002H3068H386H1471H5769H1471H1471H3956H3045H8085H1696 16Their quiver is as an open sepulchre, they are all mighty men.H827H6605H6913H1368 17And they shall eat up thine harvest, and thy bread, which thy sons and thy daughters should eat: they shall eat up thy flocks and thine herds: they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees: they shall impoverish thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst, with the sword.H398H7105H3899H1121H1323H398H398H6629H1241H398H1612H8384H7567H4013H5892H2007H982H2719 18Nevertheless in those days, saith the LORD, I will not make a full end with you.H3117H5002H3068H6213H3617 19And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say, Wherefore doeth the LORD our God all these things unto us? then shalt thou answer them, Like as ye have forsaken me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers in a land that is not your's.H559H8478H4100H6213H3068H430H559H5800H5647H5236H430H776H5647H2114H776 20Declare this in the house of Jacob, and publish it in Judah, saying,H5046H1004H3290H8085H3063H559 21Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:H8085H5530H5971H3820H5869H7200H241H8085 22Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?H3372H5002H3068H2342H6440H7760H2344H1366H3220H5769H2706H5674H1530H1607H3201H1993H5674 23But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone.H5971H5637H4784H3820H5493H3212 24Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.H559H3824H3372H3068H430H5414H1653H3138H4456H6256H8104H2708H7620H7105 25Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.H5771H5186H2403H4513H2896 26For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.H5971H4672H7563H7789H7918H3353H5324H4889H3920H582 27As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.H3619H4392H5775H1004H4392H4820H1431H6238 28They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.H8080H6245H5674H1697H7451H1777H1779H3490H6743H4941H34H8199 29Shall I not visit for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?H6485H5002H3068H5315H5358H1471 30A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land;H8047H8186H1961H776 31The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?H5030H5012H8267H3548H7287H3027H5971H157H6213H319
