A word to the wise

Is. 10:1    Doom to those
who pronounce wicked decrees,
and keep writing harmful laws
2 to deprive the needy of their rights
and to rob the poor among my people
of justice;
to make widows their loot;
to steal from orphans!
3 What will you do
on the day of punishment
when disaster comes from far away?
To whom will you flee for help;
where will you stash your wealth?
4 How will you avoid
crouching among the prisoners
and falling among the slain?
Even so, God’s anger
hasn’t turned away;
God’s hand is still extended. (CEB)

Let those who have ears understand!
