Bible verse

The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

Isaiah Isa.3:9-10

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What’s a sundial in the shade?

What does "The shew of their countenance doth witness against them" mean in English? And if this gibberish is English it's a variety not spoken by anybody but ministers in hundreds of years. Doesn't contemporary English sound impressive or religious enough?
