1. You (Israel/Judah) have broken the covenant;
you had better repent!
2. No repentance? Then judgement! Judgment
will also come on the nations.
3. Yet there is hope beyond the judgement for a
glorious future restoration both for Israel/
Judah and for the nations.
"The line it is drawn, the curse it is cast,
The slow one now will later be fast.
As the present now will later be past,
The order is rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now will later be last,
For the times they are a changin'."
"How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must
one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take
till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend,
is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind."
"The prophetic books are not essays organized around propositional statements and logical sequential argumentation. Neither are they stories driven by sequential time, action, and plot. While they are organized and logical, and while they do reflect plot (in the broadest sense), most of the prophetic books can probably best be characterized as
. That is, most of the prophetic books are collections of material--oracles, sermons, dialogues, and short narrative episodes. In this sense, they are similar in some regards to a modern anthology of a poet's life: poems, letters, stories, and so forth."
"With what shall I come to the LORD and bow myself before the God on high? Shall I come to Him with burnt offerings, with yearling calves? Does the LORD take delight in thousands of rams, in ten thousand rivers of oil? Shall I present my firstborn for my rebellious acts, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"
