036:003:001
Woe to her that is filthy and polluted,
to the oppressing city!


036:003:002
She obeyed not the voice;
she received not correction;
she trusted not in the LORD;
she drew not near to her God.


036:003:003
Her princes within her are roaring lions;
her judges are evening wolves;
they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.


036:003:004
Her prophets are light and treacherous persons:
her priests have polluted the sanctuary,
they have done violence to the law.


036:003:005
The just LORD is in the midst thereof;
he will not do iniquity:
every morning doth he bring his judgment to light,
he faileth not;
but the unjust knoweth no shame.


036:003:006
I have cut off the nations:
their towers are desolate;
I made their streets waste,
that none passeth by:
their cities are destroyed,
so that there is no man,
that there is none inhabitant.


036:003:007
I said,
Surely thou wilt fear me,
thou wilt receive instruction;
so their dwelling should not be cut off,
howsoever I punished them:
but they rose early,
and corrupted all their doings.


036:003:008
Therefore wait ye upon me,
saith the LORD,
until the day that I rise up to the prey:
for my determination is to gather the nations,
that I may assemble the kingdoms,
to pour upon them mine indignation,
even all my fierce anger:
for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.


036:003:009
For then will I turn to the people a pure language,
that they may all call upon the name of the LORD,
to serve him with one consent.


036:003:010
From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants,
even the daughter of my dispersed,
shall bring mine offering.


036:003:011
In that day shalt thou not be ashamed for all thy doings,
wherein thou hast transgressed against me:
for then I will take away out of the midst of thee them that rejoice in thy pride,
and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holy mountain.


036:003:012
I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people,
and they shall trust in the name of the LORD.


036:003:013
The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity,
nor speak lies;
neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth:
for they shall feed and lie down,
and none shall make them afraid.


036:003:014
Sing,
O daughter of Zion;
shout,
O Israel;
be glad and rejoice with all the heart,
O daughter of Jerusalem.


036:003:015
The LORD hath taken away thy judgments,
he hath cast out thine enemy:
the king of Israel,
even the LORD,
is in the midst of thee:
thou shalt not see evil any more.


036:003:016
In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem,
Fear thou not:
and to Zion,
Let not thine hands be slack.


036:003:017
The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty;
he will save,
he will rejoice over thee with joy;
he will rest in his love,
he will joy over thee with singing.


036:003:018
I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly,
who are of thee,
to whom the reproach of it was a burden.


036:003:019
Behold,
at that time I will undo all that afflict thee:
and I will save her that halteth,
and gather her that was driven out;
and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.


036:003:020
At that time will I bring you again,
even in the time that I gather you:
for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth,
when I turn back your captivity before your eyes,
saith the LORD.
