Thematic Bible: Palliation of


Thematic Bible



Whoever says to the guilty, “You are innocent”
people will curse him, and tribes will denounce him;



Those who reject the law praise the wicked,
but those who keep the law battle against them.

Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who substitute darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who substitute bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.

You have wearied the Lord with your words.Yet you ask, “How have we wearied Him?” When you say, “Everyone who does what is evil is good in the Lord’s sight, and He is pleased with them,” or “Where is the God of justice?”

Because you have disheartened the righteous person with lies, even though I have not caused him grief, and because you have encouraged the wicked person not to turn from his evil way to save his life,
