Where Are The Wise Men?
Who is the wise man who may understand this? And
Who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD has spoken,
That he may declare it?
Why does the land perish and burn up like a wilderness
So that no one can pass through?
And the LORD said,
“Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them,
And have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it,
“But they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts
And after the Baals, which their fathers taught them,”
From Jeremiah 9
