The Lord is righteous in her midst,
He will do no unrighteousness.
[a]Every morning He brings His justice to light;
He never fails,
But (A)the unjust knows no shame.

“I have cut off nations,
Their fortresses are devastated;
I have made their streets desolate,
With none passing by.
Their cities are destroyed;
There is no one, no inhabitant.
(B)I said, ‘Surely you will fear Me,
You will receive instruction’—
So that her dwelling would not be cut off,
Despite everything for which I punished her.
But [b]they rose early and (C)corrupted all their deeds.
