How sad that the Lord said this to Judah,
“‘Everyone take heed to his neighbor, and do not trust any brother; for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbor will walk with slanderers. Everyone will deceive his neighbor, and will not speak the truth; they have taught their tongue to speak lies; they weary themselves to commit iniquity. Your dwelling place is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know Me,’ says the LORD” (Jeremiah 9:4-6).
He told them that they could not trust one another, because they were deceitful with one another, and they refused to know Him, which was the source of the problem.
Do you see a society that so lives that they cannot trust one another? Then you have seen a people who refuse to know the Lord.
Do you know the Lord?
