ALTAR CALL
• 14 ¶ Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you
scornful men, Who rule this people who are in
Jerusalem, 15 Because you have said, "We have
made a covenant with death, And with Sheol we are
in agreement. When the overflowing scourge
passes through, It will not come to us, For we have
made lies our refuge, And under falsehood we have
hidden ourselves." 16 Therefore thus says the Lord
GOD: "Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a
foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone,
a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act
hastily.
