Bible: Jeremiah 7:21-23

7:21 The Lord said to the people of Judah, 1  “The Lord God of Israel who rules over all 2  says: ‘You might as well go ahead and add the meat of your burnt offerings to that of the other sacrifices and eat it, too! 3  7:22 Consider this: 4  When I spoke to your ancestors after I brought them out of Egypt, I did not merely give them commands about burnt offerings and sacrifices. 7:23 I also explicitly commanded them: 5  “Obey me. If you do, I 6  will be your God and you will be my people. Live exactly the way I tell you 7  and things will go well with you.”
