“… Why do you persist in rebellion? Your whole
head is injured, your whole heart is afflicted.
From the sole of your foot to the top of your head
there is no soundness – only wounds and welts
and open sores not cleansed or bandaged or
soothed with oil” (Isaiah 1:5-6).
Talk about being dropped on your head –
How bad can it get? I mean, ancient Israel was a
real basket case physically and spiritually. It must
have really hurt to have open wounds, welts, and
sores all over your body.
What is worse than open wounds, welts, and
sores? – Giving open wounds, welts, and sores
by some of the things we say and do to people.
