CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
3:1 The prey - Extortion and rapine.
Don't make your living by extortion or put your hope in stealing. And if your wealth increases, don't make it the center of your life.
"Now this is what the Sovereign LORD says: What sorrow awaits Jerusalem, the city of murderers! She is a cooking pot whose corruption can't be cleaned out. Take the meat out in random order, for no piece is better than another.
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: What sorrow awaits Jerusalem, the city of murderers! I myself will pile up the fuel beneath her.
"I am your enemy!" says the LORD of Heaven's Armies. "Your chariots will soon go up in smoke. Your young men will be killed in battle. Never again will you plunder conquered nations. The voices of your proud messengers will be heard no more."
"What sorrow awaits you who build cities with money gained through murder and corruption!
