Isaiah 9:17 Therefore the Lord does not rejoice over their young men, and has no compassion on their fatherless and widows; for everyone is godless and an evildoer, and every mouth speaks folly. For all this His anger has not turned away, and His hand is stretched out still.
Even those who are normally the special object of God's care and compassion are still liable for judgement and wrath as long as they remain disobedience in the face of God's rebuke. Even the disenfranchised in a society are involved in the punishment of that society if the society as a whole is disobedient and going against God's ways. Does that sound familiar? Is that hapenning to a society near you?
