Israel Refined for God’s Glory1 Hear this, O house of Jacob,
a who are called by the name of Israel,
and b who came from the waters of Judah,
c who swear by the name of the Lord
and confess the God of Israel,
but not in truth or right.
2For they call themselves after the holy city,
d and stay themselves on the God of Israel;
the Lord of hosts is his name.
Jeremiah 7:4-104 e Do not trust in these deceptive words: ‘This is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord.’ 5“For if you truly f amend your ways and your deeds, if you truly g execute justice one with another, 6if you h do not oppress the sojourner, the fatherless, or the widow, i or shed innocent blood in this place, j and if you do not go after other gods to your own harm, 7 k then I will let you dwell in this place l in the land that I gave of old to your fathers forever. 8“Behold, you trust in deceptive words to no avail. 9 m Will you steal, murder, commit adultery n swear falsely o make offerings to Baal p and go after other gods that you have not known, 10and then come and stand before me in this house, q which is called by my name, and say, ‘We are delivered!’—only to go on doing all these abominations?
Luke 13:28-2928 r In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see s Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God but t you yourselves cast out. 29And u people will come from east and west, and from north and south, and v recline at table in the kingdom of God.
Luke 16:23-3123and in w Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and x saw Abraham far off and Lazarus y at his side. 24And he called out z ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and aa cool my tongue, for ab I am in anguish in this flame.’ 25But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that ac you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. 26And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.’ 27And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father’s house— 28for I have five brothers ▼
▼Or brothers and sisters—so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.’ 29But Abraham said, ‘They have ae Moses and the Prophets; af let them hear them.’ 30And he said, ‘No ag father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31He said to him, ‘If they do not hear ah Moses and the Prophets ai neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.’”
John 8:3333They answered him, aj “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”
Romans 4:1616That is why it depends on faith, ak in order that the promise may rest on grace and al be guaranteed to all his offspring—not only to the adherent of the law but also to the one who shares the faith of Abraham, am who is the father of us all,
Romans 9:77and not all are children of Abraham an because they are his offspring, but ao “Through Isaac shall your offspring be named.”
