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.
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.
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.
