CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They say unto God - This is the language of their conduct, though not directly of their lips.

since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD.
Leave this way, get off this path, and stop confronting us with the Holy One of Israel!"
You live in the midst of deception; in their deceit they refuse to acknowledge me," declares the LORD.
