Despite God’s witness of Ephraim’s destruction, Judah (the Southern Kingdom) didn’t not repent from her wickedness. Becoming drunkards, they perverted justice and made a Covenant with Death. Punishment was not far away.
Isaiah 28:7-8; 14-15
But they also have erred through wine,
And through intoxicating drink are out of the way;
The priest and the prophet have erred through intoxicating drink,
They are swallowed up by wine,
They are out of the way through intoxicating drink;
They err in vision, they stumble in judgment.
8 For all tables are full of vomit and filth;
No place is clean.
14 Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scornful men,
Who rule this people who are in Jerusalem,
15 Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death,
And with Sheol we are in agreement.
When the overflowing scourge passes through,
It will not come to us,
For we have made lies our refuge,
And under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.”
PRAY FOR ALL ISRAEL TO TURN FROM HER REBELLION AND LIVE HOLY UNTO THE LORD.
