These next few chapters outline the sin of Israel. From the exile in Egypt to the current condition, God has always been there for the people but the people continue to turn from God. We would be foolish to think this pattern is over…it can’t be. Where are we in the history of God’s people? If a book of the bible were focused on your life, how would it read? This is not just something for these people long ago, it is for us today.
