Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land,
who do his just commands;
seek righteousness; seek humility;
perhaps you may be hidden
on the day of the anger of the Lord.
Busquen al SEÑOR, Todos ustedes, humildes de la tierra Que han cumplido Sus preceptos; Busquen la justicia, busquen la humildad. Quizá serán protegidos El día de la ira del SEÑOR.
God cannot and will not allow the evil and injustice keep prevailing on this Earth. He has allowed it for a time, but there will be a day when his wrath will prevail over all the wrong. This tells us how we can escape and hide in His amazing love.
1Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!
2She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God.
3Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.
4Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law.
5The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.
1 ¡Ay de la rebelde y contaminada,
la ciudad opresora!
2 No escuchó la voz,
ni aceptó la corrección.
No confió en el SEÑOR,
ni se acercó a su Dios.
3 Sus príncipes en medio de ella son leones rugientes,
sus jueces, lobos al anochecer;
no dejan nada para la mañana.
4 Sus profetas son temerarios, hombres pérfidos;
sus sacerdotes han profanado el santuario,
han violado la ley.
5 El SEÑOR es justo en medio de ella;
no cometerá injusticia.
Cada mañana saca a luz su juicio,
pero el injusto no conoce la vergüenza.
When I read this prophetic scripture, I am considering today’s world and the United States. Could we fit into this? We need to repent and do right. We need to seek the True and Living God! We need to fall down and worship before Him and ask His mercy. It says at the end the unjust know not shame. Do you feel shame when you do wrong, or is it just another thing? Cry out to Jesus and beg His grace and mercy upon mankind!
