Psalm 50:16-20
But God says to the wicked: "What right do you have to recite My statutes and to take My covenant on your lips?
You hate instruction and turn your back on My words.
When you see a thief, you make friends with him, and you associate with adulterers.
You unleash your mouth for evil and harness your tongue for deceit.
You sit, maligning your brother, slandering your mother's son.
Jeremiah 7:4-10
Do not trust deceitful words, chanting: This is the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD.
Instead, if you really change your ways and your actions, if you act justly toward one another,
if you no longer oppress the alien, the fatherless, and the widow and no longer shed innocent blood in this place or follow other gods, bringing harm on yourselves,
I will allow you to live in this place, the land I gave to your ancestors forever and ever.
[But] look, you keep trusting in deceitful words that cannot help.
"Do you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Baal, and follow other gods that you have not known?
Then do you come and stand before Me in this house called by My name and insist: We are safe? As a result, you are free to continue doing all these detestable acts!
