Isaiah 3:9-11 The Righteous V. the Wicked.

Isa 3:9 The look on their faces will be held against them. They boast about their sins, which are like those of the people of Sodom. They don’t even bother to hide them. How horrible it will be for these people, because they have brought disaster on themselves.
Isa 3:10 Tell the righteous that blessings will come to them. They will taste the fruit of their labour.
Isa 3:11 How horrible it will be for the wicked! Disaster will strike them. What they have done will be done to them.

Notes.v.9.  The Look on their faces testifies against them. The show on their countenance is impudence and pride. An insolent look is all over their faces.

It testifies against them. What is in their hearts testifies on their faces” “An answering of the countenance is so linked to the purposes of the soul that it shows their true character and betrays all their plans.” Barnes Notes.

They parade their sin like Sodom. They make no attempt to conceal their wicked deeds just like Sodom.  Gen 19:5 They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to stay with you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.” Isa 1:10 Listen to the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom! Pay attention to the teachings from our God, you people of Gomorrah!

Woe to them, (the Jews of Jerusalem and Judea) They bring theis woe upon themselves. They deserve the consequences for their action. Woe = alas. 

They have brought disaster upon themselves. (CEV) You have brought all this disaster upon yourselves. M. Henry: “What evil consequences befalls sinners it is of their own procuring.”

The one who is evil in heart / purpose /and life. Because he is wicked them he does wicked deeds. He is influenced by the Wicked One of whom he is a slave.

Disaster will strike them. (or disaster is upon them. They are in Big trouble!!!! What they have done will have its conseuqnces in this life and the life to come. They will get what they deserve. This will be the payment for what they have schemed and planned for.  Oh! What a terrible lot is that of the wicked man or woman. Cursed in time and more greatly accursed throughout eternity. How sad. What a sorry state.
