Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness…Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight…Who justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away the rights of the ones who are in the right! (Isaiah 5:20–23, NASB95)

In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes. (Judges 17:6, NASB95)

  1. Anoint Your Eyes With Salve From The Holy Spirit – They were spiritually blind to their true condition.

…if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. (2 Cor. 4:3–6)
