    "Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: that this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:" WE ARE AN EPISTLE OF CHRIST, which all men read; and The Father has sent His Spirit into our hearts, to be worked out in our lives, and so to convict the world and show them Jesus!

    The opening verses showed that the Israelites needed help but they failed to look to the proper place for help. Jehovah God is the best source of help possible and they should have looked to Him instead of putting trust in men and horses. If we fail to look to the right place for help we will experience hardship just as the Israelites did.
