Jeremiah 16:12 Parallel
CommentaryJeremiah 16:12 Parallel Commentaries
For from within, out of a person's heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder,
1 Samuel 15:23
Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft, and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols. So because you have rejected the command of the LORD, he has rejected you as king."
It seems so tragic that everyone under the sun suffers the same fate. That is why people are not more careful to be good. Instead, they choose their own mad course, for they have no hope. There is nothing ahead but death anyway.
"But my people would not listen to me. They kept doing whatever they wanted, following the stubborn desires of their evil hearts. They went backward instead of forward.
But my people have not listened to me or even tried to hear. They have been stubborn and sinful--even worse than their ancestors.
Instead, they have stubbornly followed their own desires and worshiped the images of Baal, as their ancestors taught them.
These wicked people refuse to listen to me. They stubbornly follow their own desires and worship other gods. Therefore, they will become like this loincloth--good for nothing!
