Ezekiel 22:4Wrench

BACK NEXT

You [Jerusalem] grow increasingly guilty.
[You wallow] in the blood you keep shedding.
You keep defiling yourself by making and [worshipping] your demon-idols.
You bait your [death] day to draw near.
You've reached the end of your years.
So I've made your [name] an insult to the beast-nations.
Every country [on earth] mocks you.

Political Evil

Note: Certainly true of Washington and Los Angeles.
