This will happen because Jerusalem has stumbled,
    and Judah has fallen.
The things they say and do are against the Lord;
    they ·turn against [rebel against; defy] ·him [L his glory/glorious presence].
The look on their faces ·shows they are guilty [testifies against them];
    like the people of Sodom [Gen. 18–19], they ·are proud of [flaunt; parade; declare] their sin.
    They don’t ·care who sees [conceal; hide] it.
·How terrible it will be for them [L Woe to their soul],
    because they have brought ·much trouble [disaster; evil] on themselves.

10 Tell ·those who do what is right [the righteous] that things will go well for them,
    because they will ·receive a reward for what they do [L eat the fruit of their actions].
