Isaiah 3:6-8

When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand: In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people. For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory.

 

People will try to draft a relative to take charge of “these ruins,” but the latter will refuse, since he has neither food nor clothing in his house. And no one is to blame for the calamity, Isaiah said, but the people themselves.
