You cannot find forgiveness for your own faults when you are focused on the faults of others.
Nothing is easier than fault finding. Fault finding is not a gift. It takes no talent, no self-denial, no wisdom, no brains, no drive, and no character to set up in the grumbling business. Actually, it requires a lack of character to find fault and stab a person in the back.
The “city of our God” appears only 2x in the whole Bible, both times in this chapter.

Israel appears in the Bible 2,567 times.
Jerusalem appears in the Bible 821 times.
