Thought for the day

Is. 5:20    Doom to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who present darkness as light
and light as darkness,
who make bitterness sweet
and sweetness bitter.

Is. 5:21    Doom to those
who consider themselves wise,
who think of themselves as clever.

Is. 5:22    Doom to the wine-swigging warriors,
mighty at mixing drinks,
23 who spare the guilty for bribes,
and rob the innocent of their rights.
24 Therefore, as a tongue of fire
devours stubble,
and as hay shrivels in a flame,
so their roots will rot,
and their blossoms turn to dust,
for they have rejected the teaching of
the LORD of heavenly forces,
and have despised the word
of Israel’s holy one. (Common English Bible)
