Context Readings

Yahweh Has An Indictment

1 "Hear this message from the LORD, people of Israel. Indeed, the LORD brings a charge against the people who live in the land for there is no truth and no gracious love or knowledge of God in the land. 2 Swearing, lying, murder, theft, and adultery are rampant, and blood mingles with blood. 3 Therefore the land will mourn, and all who live there will languish, along with the wild animals of the field and the birds of the air. Even the fish in the sea will disappear.
