"And the word of the Lord came again to Zechariah: 'This is what the Lord Almighty says: 'Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor. In your hearts do not think evil of each other.
'But they refused to pay attention; stubbornly they turned their backs and stopped up their ears. They made their hearts as hard as flint and would not listen to the law or to the words that the Lord Almighty had sent by his Spirit through the earlier prophets. So the Lord Almighty was very angry."
Any Sin Seems Natural
the 2nd time
God sent warnings through his prophets,
yet the people continued to sin,
they hardend their hearts.
Now we have God's Word to follow and apply to our lives.
Learn from the past, pay attention and submit to the Lord.
