    Lev.26:40-42 If they shall confess their iniquity...with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me; And that I also have walked contrary unto them...if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:
    Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob. Salvation- A circumcised heart. Romans2:28-29

    Verse 14~Daniel was a young man when he was mentioned here with faithful men like Noah and Job. This shows that he developed a pattern of faithful service to Jehovah God and one is never to young to develop a personal relationship with God.

    Verse 16: Family relationships will not decide whether one will be spared and live through Jehovah's day. Each must personally build a relationship with Jehovah God.

    Steve; I have been reading these again recently also. Its hard to put into words just how to aptly express; but this is the pronouncement of doom that will mean wailing and gnashing of teeth for this kind of people here spoken of. This conclusion of God to forsake them, comes from Him whose understanding is higher than there is any number to measure it; and has found that there is no remedy.
