Hear the word of the Lord,
you rulers of Sodom;
listen to the instruction of our God,
you people of Gomorrah! (Isaiah 1:10 NIV)
Here God is trying to get the attention of the leaders of Jerusalem and Judah by addressing them as Sodom and Gomorrah, two of the most wicked cities every to exist in the land of Canaan. Yet unlike Sodom and Gomorrah, Jerusalem is supposed to be the city of the people of the God who created the universe, where His temple is located.
