New Century Version
7 The time of punishment has come,
the time to pay for sins.
Let Israel know this:
You think the prophet is a fool,
and you say the spiritual person is crazy.
You have sinned very much,
and your hatred is great.
8 Is Israel a watchman?
Are God’s people prophets?
Everywhere Israel goes, traps are set for him.
He is an enemy in God’s house.
9 The people of Israel have gone deep into sin
as the people of Gibeah[a] did.
The Lord will remember the evil things they have done,
and he will punish their sins.
