The Lord within her (A)is righteous;
    he does no injustice;
every morning he shows forth his justice;
    each dawn he does not fail;
    but (B)the unjust knows no shame.

(C)“I have cut off nations;
    their battlements are in ruins;
I have laid waste their streets
    (D)so that no one walks in them;
their cities have been made desolate,
    without a man, without an inhabitant.
(E)I said, ‘Surely you will fear me;
    (F)you will accept correction.
Then your[a] dwelling would not be cut off
    according to all that I have appointed against you.’[b]
But (G)all the more they were eager
    to make all their deeds corrupt.
