With the scorn of those who are at ease,
With the contempt of the proud.

Isaiah 32:9-11 New King James Version (NKJV)

Consequences of Complacency

Rise up, you women who are at ease,
Hear my voice;
You complacent daughters,
Give ear to my speech.
10 In a year and some days
You will be troubled, you complacent women;
For the vintage will fail,
The gathering will not come.
11 Tremble, you women who are at ease;
Be troubled, you complacent ones;
Strip yourselves, make yourselves bare,
And gird sackcloth on your waists.

Isaiah 32:9-11 New International Version (NIV)

The Women of Jerusalem

You women who are so complacent,
    rise up and listen to me;
you daughters who feel secure,
    hear what I have to say!
10 In little more than a year
    you who feel secure will tremble;
the grape harvest will fail,
    and the harvest of fruit will not come.
11 Tremble, you complacent women;
    shudder, you daughters who feel secure!
Strip off your fine clothes
    and wrap yourselves in rags.

Zephaniah 1:12 New King James Version (NKJV)

12 “And it shall come to pass at that time
That I will search Jerusalem with lamps,
And punish the men
Who are settled[a] in complacency,
Who say in their heart,
‘The Lord will not do good,
Nor will He do evil.’
