Isaiah 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, And women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, And destroy the way of thy paths.
The verse says that their leaders were causing them to make mistakes, to err. They were being destroyed because their leaders were not prepared to lead. Their leaders were children and instead of leading they were oppressing. They had allowed their women to rule over them also. What a sad condition to find your country or your family suffering like this.
Too often I think that families today have the same problem. They are oppressed by their children. The parents do not discipline but instead they are oppressed The man doesn’t lead his home but the woman rules over him. These are crucial mistakes that should be considered and rectified.
