Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at His word.
This passage is a timeless demonstration of people’s reaction to the Word of God, which was spoken to them by God’s man during a time of peril, when the armies of Babylon were literally at their doorstep. This chapter records three times of proclamation in a single day. Nevertheless, there were three different reactions: 1). The common people heard the Word with total indifference. 2). The responsible people heard the Word of God with conviction. 3) The king heard the Word of God with angry rejection. What is your reaction to the Word of God? Classify yourself.
