Bible: Isaiah 1:21-23

Purifying Judgment

1:21 How tragic that the once-faithful city

has become a prostitute! 1 

She was once a center of 2  justice,

fairness resided in her,

but now only murderers. 3 

1:22 Your 4  silver has become scum, 5 

your beer is diluted with water. 6 

1:23 Your officials are rebels, 7 

they associate with 8  thieves.

All of them love bribery,

and look for 9  payoffs. 10 

They do not take up the cause of the orphan, 11 

or defend the rights of the widow. 12
