Verse #4 — Ez. 16:49-50

Ezekiel 16:49-50 (New International Version, ©2011)

49 “‘Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. 50 They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.

Am I arrogant? Am I overfed? Am I unconcerned? Do I help the poor?

We’re familiar with the “detestable things” of Sodom. Or we think we are. Verse 49 is too easily forgotten when verse 50 gets all the elicit attention.
