Seven more judgments are introduced. We are told these are the final ones. God’s judgment on humanity has nearly reached its completion. God is praised because all will see his righteousness.
It may seem odd to praise God for his righteousness in the midst of announcements of his wrath. God’s righteousness causes him to love everyone, but it also causes him to reject people’s sin. He has always provided a way for us to be forgiven, but those who reject forgiveness will not escape judgment.
