Listen to the Word of the Lord,
All of you people of Sodom;
Let not the Scriptures be ignored,
Of destruction of your kingdom.
Pay attention what you were taught,
By God people of Gomorrah;
Alter the way that you have thought,
Close up the box of Pandora.
What do all your sacrifices,
And burnt offerings mean to me;
When immoral sin entices,
Displeasing for the Lord to see.
When you appear in His presence,
Who asked to trample His courtyards;
Bring not any disobedience,
While expecting some rewards.
Your incense is disgusting Him,
Worshipping both the moon and sun;
While shunning God feeling grim,
On iniquities you have done.
They are a burden to the Lord,
He is tired enduring them;
Because you merely have ignored,
He is preparing to condemn.
When you stretch out your hands in prayer,
He turns His eyes away from you;
Although what you offer to share,
He listens not what you construe.
Wash yourself as you become clean,
Get evil deeds out of His sight;
Learn to do good do not be mean,
Seek justice turning towards the light.
So come on now let us hash out,
Even though your sins are bright red;
Let snowy white shedding the doubt,
So the bread of life can be fed.
