Now therefore, what have I here, saith the LORD, that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith the LORD; and my name continually every day is blasphemed.

Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.
