Verse of the Day: 'No place to rest'

By Administrator 10-16-2006

But you rise up against my people as an enemy;
you strip the robe from the peaceful,

from those who pass by trustingly
with no thought of war.

The women of my people you drive out
from their pleasant houses;
from their young children you take away
my glory for ever.

Arise and go;
for this is no place to rest,
because of uncleanness that destroys
with a grievous destruction.

- Micah 2:8-10
