Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And not be like their fathers, a stiff-necked and uncontrolled generation; a generation whose heart was hard, whose spirit was not true to God.
And they will have grief for their sins and for the sins of their fathers, when their hearts were untrue to me, and they went against me;
And now you have come to take the place of your fathers, another generation of sinners, increasing the wrath of the Lord against Israel.
1 Kings 8:47
And if they take thought, in the land where they are prisoners, and are turned again to you, crying out in prayer to you in that land, and saying, We are sinners, we have done wrong, we have done evil;
I said, O my God, shame keeps me from lifting up my face to you, my God: for our sins are increased higher than our heads and our evil-doing has come up to heaven.
But they and our fathers, in their pride, made their necks stiff, and gave no attention to your orders,
We are sinners, acting wrongly and doing evil; we have gone against you, turning away from your orders and from your laws:
Make full, then, the measure of your fathers.
You whose hearts are hard and whose ears are shut to me; you are ever working against the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you.
