8Consider, ye brutish among the people; And ye fools, when will ye be wise?
9He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? He that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10He that chastiseth the nations, shall not he correct, Even he that teacheth man knowledge?
11Jehovah knoweth the thoughts of man, That they are vanity.
8 Entended, necios del pueblo; y vosotros fatuos, ¿cuándo seréis sabios? 9 El que plantó el oído, ¿no oirá? El que formó el ojo, ¿no verá? 10 El que castiga a las gentes, ¿no reprenderá? El que enseña la ciencia al hombre, ¿no sabrá? 11 Jehová conoce los pensamientos de los hombres, que son vanidad.
God sees and knows all, but there are actually people that do not consider that. If we all thought on that simple truth before we said, or did, I believe people would act much differently. How will some answer God at the very end? It is a sad thought that man could be so vain to think that our maker doesn’t know all things.
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!
My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the LORD loves he corrects; even as a father the son in whom he delights.
Hijo mío, no rechaces la disciplina del SEÑOR ni aborrezcas su reprensión, porque el SEÑOR a quien ama reprende, como un padre al hijo en quien se deleita.
God is the everlasting, perfect Father. He guides and corrects us for our own good. Sometimes, He needs to “spank” us. It IS for our own good, not because He likes to, but to make sure we follow the path He wants us on. Are you feeling “spanked”? Look at it with a new outlook; God loves you or He wouldn’t do anything. Thank You Daddy God; for all!
