you shall eat the good of the land;
20but if you refuse and rebel,
you shall be eaten by the sword;

v has become a whore, ▼
▼Or become unchaste

Righteousness lodged in her,
but now murderers.
22 y Your silver has become dross,
your best wine mixed with water.
23Your princes are rebels

and runs after gifts.
aa They do not bring justice to the fatherless,
and the widow’s cause does not come to them.

who add field to field,
until there is no more room,
and you are made to dwell alone
in the midst of the land.
Isaiah 58:66 “Is not this the fast that I choose:
af to loose the bonds of wickedness,
to undo the straps ag of the yoke,
to let the oppressed ▼
▼Or bruisedgo free,
and to break every yoke?
