This morning, I attended an interfaith breakfast for the National Day of Prayer where Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti quoted the prophet Isaiah:
The Lord rises to argue his case;
he stands to judge the peoples.
The Lord enters into judgement
with the elders and princes of his people:
It is you who have devoured the vineyard;
the spoil of the poor is in your houses.
What do you mean by crushing my people,
by grinding the face of the poor? says the Lord God of hosts. (Isaiah 3:13-15)
