Biblical Limericks: Woe to the Unrepentant Cities

Woe to the village of Korazin
(don’t pretend you don’t know what I mean)
for even gentile towns
would be quick to kneel down
and repent if they’d seen what you’ve seen.

And to you in Bethsaida as well,
for your citizens it will be hell;
in Tyre and Sidon
they would have sackcloth donned,
ashes too – they’d heed the warning knell.

And last but not least, Capernaum,
you think you’ll be raised when that day comes
but no, you will go down,
down  with the other towns;
it will be worse for you than Sodom.

Matthew 11: 20 - 24
