Bible Verse:
“The Lord enters into judgment against the elders and leaders of his people: "It is you who have ruined my vineyard; the plunder from the poor is in your houses. people and grinding the faces of the poor?" declares the Lord, the Lord Almighty.”
To grind the faces of the poor into dust is to ill treat the poor.
Origin and Application:
In the time when Isaiah became a prophet in the Old Testament, the leaders were ill-treating the poor in Judah, South of Jerusalem. It is against this background that God cried out against the elders and leaders.
Keywords :
