SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK
November 11, 2018 to November 17, 2018
Isaiah 66:1-5 CJB
"Heaven is my throne," says Adonai, "and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house could you build for me? What sort of place could you devise for my rest? (2) Didn't I myself make all these things? This is how they all came to be," says Adonai. "The kind of person on whom I look with favor is one with a poor and humble spirit, who trembles at my word. (3) Those others might as well kill a person as an ox, as well break a dog's neck as sacrifice a lamb, as well offer pig's blood as offer a grain offering, as well bless an idol as burn incense. Just as these have chosen their ways and enjoy their disgusting practices, (4) so I will enjoy making fools of them, and bring on them the very things they fear. For when I called, no one answered; when I spoke, they did not hear. Instead they did what was evil in my sight and chose what did not please me." (5) Hear the word of Adonai, you who tremble at his word: "Your brothers, who hate you and reject you because of my name, have said: 'Let Adonai be glorified, so we can see your joy.' But they will be put to shame."
