8-9 “Jerusalem’s on its last legs.
Judah is soon down for the count.
Everything people say and do
is at cross-purposes with God,
a slap in my face.
Brazen in their depravity,
they flaunt their sins like degenerate Sodom.
Doom to their eternal souls! They’ve made their bed;
now they’ll sleep in it.
10-11 “Reassure the righteous
that their good living will pay off.
But doom to the wicked! Disaster!
Everything they did will be done to them.
New International Version
8 Jerusalem staggers,
Judah is falling;(A)
their words(B) and deeds(C) are against the Lord,
defying(D) his glorious presence.
9 The look on their faces testifies(E) against them;
they parade their sin like Sodom;(F)
they do not hide it.
Woe to them!
They have brought disaster(G) upon themselves.
