Isaiah 1:23- How to judge the condition of your country/province

Your rulers are rebels
And companions of thieves;
Everyone loves a bribe
And chases after rewards.
They do not defend the orphan,
Nor does the widow’s plea come before them. (Isaiah 1:23 NASB)

One of the best ways to judge the spiritual state of any country or city is to study how they treat the weak and innocent, and whether or not their officials accept bribes. The country of Judah failed in this respect.
