Today’s Country: Lao People’s Democratic Republic
“Hear, O My people, and I will admonish you!
O Israel, if you will listen to Me!
There shall be no foreign god among you;
Nor shall you worship any foreign god.
I am the Lord your God,
Who brought you out of the land of Egypt;
Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
“But My people would not heed My voice,
And Israel would have none of Me.
So I gave them over to their own stubborn heart,
To walk in their own counsels.
“Oh, that My people would listen to Me,
That Israel would walk in My ways!
I would soon subdue their enemies,
And turn My hand against their adversaries.
The haters of the Lord would pretend submission to Him,
But their fate would endure forever.
He would have fed them also with the finest of wheat;
And with honey from the rock I would have satisfied you.”
from Psalm 81
The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Philistines, before Pharaoh attacked Gaza.
Thus says the Lord:…
from Jeremiah 47
Against Moab. Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel:…
Moab shall be destroyed as a people,
Because he exalted himself against the Lord.
“Yet I will bring back the captives of Moab
In the latter days,” says the Lord.
Thus far is the judgment of Moab.
from Jeremiah 48
