Jeremiah 5:30,31 Jerusalem’s Godlessness
30 An appalling and horrible thing
Has happened in the land;
31 The prophets prophesy falsely,
And the priests rule on their own authority;
And My people love it so!
But what will you do at the end of it?
Despoil Truth or Remember Him?
The world is full of acquisition.
Majority market share
Is the desirable position.
If this is the vein
In our fabric of living,
What happens to the welfare
And that of our children?
The focus should be
On our basic human needs
Not a power trip’s vision.
Emerges the light of compassion
It fills our minds
And expands our reason
When the LORD’s hand
Is the truth in our motion.
Jeremiah 6:16 Destruction of Jerusalem Impending
16 Thus says the LORD,
“Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths,
Where the good way is, and walk in it;
And you will find rest for your souls.”
