Behold, the days are coming,” declares the God, the Eternal One
“when I will send hunger on the land—
not a hunger of bread, nor a thirst for water,
but of hearing the words of the Eternal One.
Seek the Eternal One while he may be found;
call upon him while he is near;
Let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the Eternal One, that he may have compassion on him,
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Eternal One..
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
*The Eternal One is my translation of the Hebrew name for God, Yahweh, which is derived from the verb "to be." It is usually translated as the LORD in English Bibles.
From Amos 8:11 and Isaiah 55
