Purification Of Jerusalem

They judge not the fatherless, nor does the cause of the widow come to them. 24 Therefore says the Lord, LORD of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of my adversaries, and avenge me of my enemies. 25 And I will turn my hand upon thee, and thoroughly purge away thy dross, and will take away all thy tin.
