“For Jerusalem has stumbled,
    and Judah has fallen,
because what they say and do opposes[a] the Lord;
    they keep defying him.[b]

“The expressions on their faces give them away.[c]
    They parade their sin around like Sodom;
        they don’t even try to[d] hide it.
How horrible it will be for them,
    because they have brought disaster on themselves!”

Encouragement to the Righteous

10 “Tell[e] the righteous that things will go well,
    because they will enjoy[f] the fruit of their actions.”
