Your words have been stout against me, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much
Ye have said, It is
vain to serve God: and what profit is it
that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?
And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that
tempt God are even delivered.
Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it
, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
