Psalm 79:6; Jeremiah 9:3; Jeremiah 10:25; Galatians 4:8

mPour out your anger on the nations

that ndo not know you,

and on the kingdoms

that odo not call upon your name!


pThey bend their tongue like a bow;

falsehood and not truth has grown strong1 in the land;

for they proceed from evil to evil,

qand they do not know me, declares the Lord.


25  yPour out your wrath on the nations that know you not,

and on the peoples that call not on your name,

zfor they have devoured Jacob;

they have devoured him and consumed him,

and have laid waste his habitation.


Paul's Concern for the Galatians

Formerly, when you ldid not know God, you mwere enslaved to those that by nature nare not gods.
