The righteous Lord is in her;(A)
he does no wrong.(B)
He applies his justice morning by morning;
he does not fail at dawn,
yet the one who does wrong knows no shame.(C)

I have cut off nations;
their corner towers(D) are destroyed.
I have laid waste their streets,
with no one to pass through.
Their cities lie devastated,
without a person, without an inhabitant.(E)
I said: You will certainly fear me
and accept correction.
Then her dwelling place[a]
would not be cut off
based on all that I had allocated to her.
However, they became more corrupt
in all their actions.
