It is shocking that God’s people had gone so far in the wrong direction that they forgot there was even a Bible. The scroll was the first five books of the Old Testament. The priests were in charge of it and it is amazing to think that the worship of God and the ministry of the priest was in such disrepair that they had lost the Word from God!
This is a reminder that we need to keep God’s Words in our hearts. It is his instruction, warning and counsel that will help us live lives he is pleased with.
