Context Readings

Yahweh Abhors Israel's Pride

12 Shall horses run upon crag? or will a man plough there with oxen? For ye have turned to poison the sentence of justice, and the fruit of righteousness, to wormwood: 13 Who rejoice in a thing of nought, - who say, Have we not by our own strength, taken to ourselves horns? 14 For behold me! raising up against you, O house of Israel, Declareth Yahweh, the God of hosts - a nation! And they shall crush you, from the entering in of Hamath, unto the torrent-bed of the waste plain.
