In the gracious way of our God, even a prophecy of condemnation ends with hope and praise. There will be a way out for the people who love God, in spite of the circumstances and the sin and destruction around them. vs. 2 Surely God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. Blessed are the people who know and serve such a God as this, who are loved by Him.
