Yirmaeyahu (Jeremiah) 6:16-19, 27-30 CJB
Here is what ADONAI says:
“Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask about the ancient paths.
“Which one is the good way?’
Take it, and you will find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not take it.’
I appointed sentinals to direct them;
“Listen for the sound of the shofar.’
But they said ‘We will not listen.’
So hear, you nations; know, you assembly,
what there is against them.
Hear, oh earth! I am going
to bring disaster on this people;
it is the consequence
of their own way of thinking;
for they pay no attention to My words;
and as for My Torah, they reject it.
“I have made you a refiner and tester of My people,
to know and test how they behave.
All of them are total rebels,
spreading slanderous gossip;
they are bronze and iron, [inferior metals,]
all of them corrupt.
The bellows blast away;
and though the lead is consumed by the fire,
in vain has the smelter refined,
for the wicked have not been separated,
They are called ‘rejected silver,’
because ADONAI has rejected them.”
