The unfaithful country (2 Chr 36:14-36:16)

“All the leading priests and the people also were exceedingly unfaithful, following all the abominations of the nations. They polluted the house of Yahweh that he had consecrated in Jerusalem. Yahweh, the God of their ancestors, sent persistently to them his messengers, because he had compassion on his people and on his dwelling place. They kept mocking the messengers of God, despising his words, and scoffing at his prophets, until the wrath of Yahweh against his people became so great that there was no remedy.”

This is a diatribe against the whole nation of Judah, rather than just its leaders, the kings. Both the priests and people were unfaithful. They were like other countries, not special to Yahweh. They polluted the Temple, the house of Yahweh, in Jerusalem. Yahweh had sent messengers to warn the people. However, they mocked and despised the words of the prophets. The prophets and the Levites seem to be the good guys since there is no mention of the evil ways of the Levites. Finally, the anger of Yahweh had no other remedy except to send the people into captivity.

  1. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera.

Many thanks

  2. I do believe all of the ideas you have offered in your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

  3. Hey are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any html coding expertise to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
