    NEHEMIAH 9:3 and they stood up in their place and read in the book of the law of LORD THEIR GOD one fourth part of the day and another fourth part they confessed and worshipped THE LORD THEIR GOD
    ISAIAH 29:15 woe to them that seek deep to hide their counsel from THE LORD and their works are done in the dark and they say WHO SEETH US AND WHO KNOWETH US

    Verse 33~The Israelites acknowledged that the reason they were suffering was because they had done wrong and not because of any fault on the part of Jehovah God.
  • Brianna vs. 17-20
    Our God is such a merciful God. With the Israelites, despite their numerous sins against Jehovah God and his representatives this highlights how God still cared for them and kept his promise to Abraham. Our situation today is similar. We live in a wicked world, yet God hasn't abandoned us. He is giving us time to repent before he has to execute justice.
  • BSP
    Verse 8~Jehovah honored his promise to Abraham and this is why he is described as righteous in his choosing the nation of Israel and giving them the Promised Land. Jehovah expects us to honor our promises.
