Bible: Jer 7:4-8

7:4 Stop putting your confidence in the false belief that says, 1 We are safe! 2  The temple of the Lord is here! The temple of the Lord is here! The temple of the Lord is here! 3  7:5 You must change 4  the way you have been living and do what is right. You must treat one another fairly. 5  7:6 Stop oppressing foreigners who live in your land, children who have lost their fathers, and women who have lost their husbands. 6  Stop killing innocent people 7  in this land. Stop paying allegiance to 8  other gods. That will only bring about your ruin. 9  7:7 If you stop doing these things, 10  I will allow you to continue to live in this land 11  which I gave to your ancestors as a lasting possession. 12 

7:8‘But just look at you! 13  You are putting your confidence in a false belief 14  that will not deliver you. 15
