Keep at a Distance from Them

A warning against leagues with sinners and sin:


Book_of_Revelation015Hezekiah thought himself very happy in the friendship of Babylon, though it was the mother of harlots and idolatries; but Babylon, who now courted Jerusalem, in process of time conquered her and carried her captive. Leagues with sinners, and leagues with sin too, will end thus; it is therefore our wisdom to keep at a distance from them.

~ Matthew Henry on Isaiah 39
