Upon Our Lord's SermonOn the Mount
"Let any Man Come. "
He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way.
The LORD is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant.
Such wicked people are detestable to the LORD, but he offers his friendship to the godly.
Evil people don't understand justice, but those who follow the LORD understand completely.
Many will be purified, cleansed, and refined by these trials. But the wicked will continue in their wickedness, and none of them will understand. Only those who are wise will know what it means.
But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants."
Why can't you understand what I am saying? It's because you can't even hear me!
