Isaiah 3:7-9 New English Translation (NET Bible)

At that time[a] the brother will shout,[b]
‘I am no doctor,[c]
I have no food or coat in my house;
don’t make me a leader of the people!’”
Jerusalem certainly stumbles,
Judah falls,
for their words and their actions offend the Lord;[d]
they rebel against his royal authority.[e]
The look on their faces[f] testifies to their guilt;[g]
like the people of Sodom they openly boast of their sin.[h]
Woe to them![i]
For they bring disaster on themselves.
