Even the prophets and priests were no longer ashamed of their wrongdoing; the people were ripe for judgment.

Scripture: Jeremiah 6:13-19

ESV Text: Jeremiah 6:13-19


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 6
13 For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. 14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. 15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD. 16 Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. 17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.

     18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them. 19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 449:
My Soul, be on thy Guard

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. My soul, be on thy guard; 
Ten thousand foes arise, 
And hosts of sin are pressing hard 
To draw thee from the skies. 

2. Oh, watch and fight and pray, 
The battle ne’er give o’er; 
Renew it boldly ev’ry day 
And help divine implore. 

3. Ne’er think the vict’ry won 
Nor lay thine armor down; 
Thine arduous work will not be done 
Till thou obtain the crown. 

4. Fight on, my soul, till death 
Shall bring thee to thy God; 
He’ll take thee at thy parting breath 
To His divine abode.
