A reproach against immorality (Isa 5:20-5:20)

“Woe to you

Who call evil good!

Woe to you

Who call good evil!

Woe to you

Who put darkness for light!

Woe to you

Who put light for darkness!

Woe to you

Who put bitter for sweet!

Woe to you

Who put sweet for bitter!”

Now Isaiah takes on the immoral people who call evil good and the reverse, good evil. They put darkness on light and light on darkness. They say something is bitter when it is sweet, and vice versa. They live in an immoral upside down world.
