The Lord within it is righteous;
    he does no wrong.
Every morning he renders his judgement,
    each dawn without fail;
    but the unjust knows no shame.

I have cut off nations;
    their battlements are in ruins;
I have laid waste their streets
    so that no one walks in them;
their cities have been made desolate,
    without people, without inhabitants.
I said, ‘Surely the city[a] will fear me,
    it will accept correction;
it will not lose sight[b]
    of all that I have brought upon it.’
But they were the more eager
    to make all their deeds corrupt.
