Consequences of Complacency

Rise up, you women (A)who are at ease,
Hear my voice;
You complacent daughters,
Give ear to my speech.
10 In a year and some days
You will be troubled, you complacent women;
For the vintage will fail,
The gathering will not come.

Strip yourselves, make yourselves bare,
And gird sackcloth on your waists.

That I will search Jerusalem with lamps,
And punish the men
Who are (A)settled[a] in complacency,
(B)Who say in their heart,
‘The Lord will not do good,
Nor will He do evil.’
