Bible text(s)

God Warns his People

20The LORD says, “Tell the descendants of Jacob, tell the people of Judah: 21Pay attention, you foolish and stupid people, who have eyes, but cannot see, and have ears, but cannot hear. 22I am the LORD; why don't you fear me? Why don't you tremble before me? I placed the sand as the boundary of the sea, a permanent boundary that it cannot cross. The sea may toss, but it cannot go beyond it; the waves may roar, but they cannot break through. 23But you people! You are stubborn and rebellious; you have turned aside and left me. 24You never thought to honour me, even though I send the autumn rains and the spring rains and give you the harvest season each year. 25Instead, your sins have kept these good things from you.
