Quote of the Day

For twenty-three years, from the thirteenth year of Josiah son of Amon, king of Judah, until today, the word of Yahweh has been addressed to me and I have never tired of speaking to you (but you have not listened. Furthermore, Yahweh has untiringly sent you all his servants the prophets, but you have not listened or paid attention).  The message was this, “Turn back, each one of you, from your evil behaviour and your evil actions, and you will go on living on the soil Yahweh long ago gave to you and your ancestors for ever. (And do not follow other gods to serve and worship them, do not provoke me with things you yourselves have made, and then I shall not harm you.)   But you have not listened to me (Yahweh declares, so that you have now provoked me with things you yourselves have made, and thus harmed yourselves).” (Jer. 25:3-7)
