Jeremiah 7:4; Jeremiah 7:11; Jeremiah 7:34
Don't for a minute believe the lies being spoken here - "This is God's Temple, God's Temple, God's Temple!"
A cave full of criminals! Do you think you can turn this Temple, set apart for my worship, into something like that? Well, think again. I've got eyes in my head. I can see what's going on.'" God's Decree!
And I'll empty both smiles and laughter from the villages of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem. No wedding songs, no holiday sounds. Dead silence.
