Context
Zion Corrupted

21How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. 22Your silver is become dross, your wine mixed with water: 23Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loves gifts, and follows after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come to them. 24Therefore said the LORD, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of my adversaries, and avenge me of my enemies: 25And I will turn my hand on you, and purely purge away your dross, and take away all your tin: 26And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counsellors as at the beginning: afterward you shall be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city. 27Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness. 28And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed. 29For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which you have desired, and you shall be confounded for the gardens that you have chosen. 30For you shall be as an oak whose leaf fades, and as a garden that has no water. 31And the strong shall be as wick, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.
