Lamentation over Jerusalem (Isa 1:21-1:21)

“How the faithful city

Has become a whore!

She was full of justice!

Righteousness lodged in her!

But now there are murderers!”

There is no doubt that this faithful city is Jerusalem. What a shame! She has become a whore. She used to be full of justice and righteousness, but now there are murderers living there. The wonderful city of King David and King Solomon has become a whore because King Hezekiah decided to pay off the Assyrians not to invade them after the fall of Samaria, in 2 Kings, chapter 18.
