Context Readings

Purification Of Jerusalem

21 How the faithful city has become a harlot! She who was full of justice! Righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers. 22 Thy silver has become dross, thy wine mixed with water. 23 Thy rulers are rebellious, and companions of thieves. Everyone loves bribes, and follows after rewards. They judge not the fatherless, nor does the cause of the widow come to them.
