Seek God and Live

4 For the Lord says to the house of Israel: Seek Me and live!
5 Do not seek Bethel or go to Gilgal or journey to Beer-sheba, for Gilgal will certainly go into exile, and Bethel will come to nothing.
6 Seek Yahweh and live, or He will spread like firea [throughout] the house of Joseph; it will consume [everything,] with no one at Bethel to extinguish it.b
