Things To Consider
- God is bringing formal charges against his people.
- God speaks of the sins of the people and the priests.
- Idolatry is seeking answers and satisfaction outside of God, not just the worship of graven and carved icons.
- God warns Judah not to become like Israel.
- There is an ongoing pattern of disobedience.
- Religion cannot substitute for obedience.
- The verdict is guilty and the picture of judgment is moth, dry rot, an incurable wound, and a rampaging lion.
