Encouragement from Isaiah

Isaiah 3:8-11Modern English Version (MEV)

For Jerusalem is ruined,
and Judah is fallen,
because their tongue and their deeds are against the Lord,
to provoke the eyes of His glory.
The expression of their countenance witnesses against them,
and they declare their sin as Sodom;
they hide it not.
Woe to them!
For they have brought evil on themselves.

Say to the righteous that it shall be well with them,
for they shall eat the fruit of their deeds.

Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him,
for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

I love how in the midst of such a strong word against the wicked, the Lord pauses to basically say, “But don’t forget to remind my kids it will be ok for them!”
