Even like a man overcome with wine,
Because of the LORD
And because of His holy words.

And her inhabitants like Gomorrah.

Not from the mouth of the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxJer 23:17 - “They keep saying to those who despise Me,
‘The LORD has said, “You will have peace”’;
And as for everyone who walks in the stubbornness of his own heart,
They say, ‘Calamity will not come upon you.’

That he should see and hear His word?
