ജാതികൾ രക്ഷിക്കപ്പെടേണ്ടതിന്നായി ഞങ്ങൾ അവരോടു പ്രസംഗിക്കുന്നതു വിലക്കുന്നവരും ആകുന്നു; അങ്ങനെ അവർ തങ്ങളുടെ പാപങ്ങളെ എപ്പോഴും പൂരിപ്പിക്കുന്നു എന്നാൽ ദൈവക്രോധം അവരുടെമേൽ മുഴുത്തുവന്നിരിക്കുന്നു.

Micah 6:10

Are there yet the treasures of wickedness In the house of the wicked, And the short measure that is an abomination?
