CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
3:2 The good - Ye who hate not only to do good, but the good which is done, and those that do it. The evil - Chuse, and delight in, both evil works and evil workers.

God Spelling Himself out in Jesus: change in the original language--bother in spelling Jesus out--sticklers for the old forms--Jesus' new spelling of old words.

The Doctrine of the Scriptures.
Will those who do evil never learn? They eat up my people like bread and wouldn't think of praying to God.
Now I will expose your so-called good deeds. None of them will help you.
"Therefore, this is what the Sovereign LORD says: This city is an iron pot all right, but the pieces of meat are the victims of your injustice. As for you, I will soon drag you from this pot.

Fill it with choice pieces of meat--the rump and the shoulder and all the most tender cuts.
Yet to this very hour my people rise against me like an enemy! You steal the shirts right off the backs of those who trusted you, making them as ragged as men returning from battle.
The godly people have all disappeared; not one honest person is left on the earth. They are all murderers, setting traps even for their own brothers.
