Your own wickedness will correct you,
and your backsliding will reprove you.
Know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and a bitter one,
that you have forsaken Yahweh your God
and that my fear is not in you,
says the Lord Yahweh of Armies. Bible

“Your own wickedness will correct you.” It is a consistent theme through Scripture that evil people bring evil upon themselves (see commentary on Prov. 1:18). But at every level, from ignorance to evil, people are supposed to learn from their mistakes and misdeeds.
