Eph 2:11 Therefore remember that you, once gentiles1 in the flesh, who are called the uncircumcision by what is called the circumcision made in the flesh by hands, Footnote: 11 Cor. 12:2. Eph 2:12 that at that time you were without Messiah, excluded from the citizenship of Yisraĕl and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no expectation and without Elohim in the world. Eph 2:13 But now in Messiah יהושע you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah. Eph 2:19 So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the set-apart ones and members of the household of Elohim, Jer 10:1 Hear the word which יהוה speaks to you, O house of Yisraĕl. Jer 10:2 Thus said יהוה, Do not learn the way of the gentiles,1 and do not be awed by the signs of the heavens, for the gentiles are awed by them.2 Footnotes: 1Lev. 18:3, Dt. 12:30 & 18:9, Ezek. 11:12 & 20:32, Eph. 4:17, 1 Peter 4:3. 2Dt. 4:19 & 17:3. Jer 10:3 For the prescribed customs of these peoples are worthless, for one cuts a tree from the forest, work for the hands of a craftsman with a cutting tool. Jer 10:4 They adorn it with silver and gold, they fasten it with nails and hammers so that it does not topple. Jer 10:5 They are like a rounded post, and they do not speak. They have to be carried, because they do not walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they do no evil, nor is it in them to do any good. Jer 10:6 There is none like You, O יהוה. You are great, and great is Your Name in might. Jer 10:7 Who would not fear You, O Sovereign of the nations? For this is Your due, for among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their reigns, there is none like You. Jer 10:8 They are both brutish and foolish, an instruction of worthlessness is the tree. Happy Mithras Day. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
