To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn.
Therefore, hear the word of the LORD, O scoffers, Who rule this people who are in Jerusalem,
For this is a rebellious people, false sons, Sons who refuse to listen To the instruction of the LORD;
