Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes! Cease to do evil, learn to do right! Seek justice, relieve the oppressed, and correct the oppressor. Defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Come now, and let us reason together, says our Creator Yahuweh. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; But if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword. For the mouth of our Creator Yahuweh has spoken it.
How the faithful city has become an idolatrous harlot, she who was full of justice! Uprightness and right standing with Elohim once lodged in her—but now murderers.
Your silver has become dross, your wine is mixed with water. Your princes are rebels and companions of thieves; everyone loves bribes and runs after compensation and rewards. They judge not for the fatherless nor defend them, neither does the cause of the widow come to them for they delay or turn a deaf ear. Therefore says our Creator Yahuweh—our Creator Yahuweh of hosts, the Mighty One of Yisrael, Ah, I will appease Myself on My adversaries and avenge Myself on My enemies.
And I will bring My hand again upon you and thoroughly purge away your dross as with lye and take away all your tin or alloy.
And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning; afterward you shall be called the City of Righteousness, the Faithful City.
Tsiyon shall be redeemed with justice, and her returned converts with righteousness (uprightness and right standing with the Almighty Creator of the whole Universe.
