Warnings for Jerusalem

The city of Jerusalem[a] is now like an empty shed left in a vineyard. It is like an old straw hut abandoned in a field of cucumbers or like a city surrounded by enemies. If the Lord All-Powerful had not allowed a few people to live, we would have been destroyed completely like the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. And that almost happened!

10 You officers of Sodom, listen to the Lord’s message. You people of Gomorrah,[b] listen to God’s teaching.
