Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for thou art my servant:
I have formed thee; thou art my servant:
O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me. (Isaiah 44:21)
Remember these, O Jacob and Israel, i.e., Remember these abominable idolaters, and enjoy their madness: learn wisdom by their folly.
Therefore hear now this, thou
- that art given to pleasures,
- that dwellest carelessly,
- that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children. (Isaiah 47:8)
The daughter of pride is security, and pleasure is her niece.
