Jeremiah 5:20 - 5:25

“Declare this in the house of Jacob
And cause it to be heard in Judah, saying,
‘Now hear this, O people who are simpleminded fools and without a heart of wisdom,
Who have eyes but do not see,
Who have ears but do not hear.
Do you not fear Me?’ declares Yahweh.
‘Do you not tremble in My presence?
For I have placed the sand as a boundary for the sea,
A perpetual statute, so it cannot cross over it.
Though the waves toss, yet they cannot prevail;
Though they roar, yet they cannot cross over it.
But this people has a stubborn and rebellious heart;
They have turned aside and gone away.
They do not say in their heart,
“Let us now fear Yahweh our God,
Who gives rain in its season,
Both the early rain and the late rain,
Who keeps for us
The appointed weeks of the harvest.”
Your iniquities have turned these away,
And your sins have withheld good from you.
