Listen to the LORD, you leaders of "Sodom." Listen to the law of our God, people of "Gomorrah."
The very look on their faces gives them away. They display their sin like the people of Sodom and don't even try to hide it. They are doomed! They have brought destruction upon themselves.
But now I see that the prophets of Jerusalem are even worse! They commit adultery and love dishonesty. They encourage those who are doing evil so that no one turns away from their sins. These prophets are as wicked as the people of Sodom and Gomorrah once were."
"Your older sister was Samaria, who lived with her daughters in the north. Your younger sister was Sodom, who lived with her daughters in the south.
Sodom's sins were pride, gluttony, and laziness, while the poor and needy suffered outside her door.
They became prostitutes in Egypt. Even as young girls, they allowed men to fondle their breasts.
