The righteous Lord who lives[a] within her will do no wrong;
    he will bring justice to light morning by morning.
He never fails,
    but the unjust are shameless.

The Integrity of God’s Justice

“I have destroyed[b] nations—
    their fortifications are deserted.
I have turned their main thoroughfares into wastelands
    where no one will travel.
Their cities are desolate;
    as a result, not one man remains—
        no, not even a single resident.
I have said, ‘If only you would fear me,
    if only you would take my instructions to heart.’
        Then their houses would not have been torn down.
I have chastened them,
    but they were eager to corrupt everything they were doing.”
