29:1 If God wounds, who can heal? The word of God warns all to flee from the wrath to come, to the hope set before us in Jesus Christ. 2. The people have cause to rejoice or mourn, as their rulers are righteous or wicked. 3. Divine wisdom best keeps us from ruinous lusts. 4. The Lord Jesus is the King who will minister true judgment to the people. 5. Flatterers put men off their guard, which betrays them into foolish conduct. 6. Transgressions always end in vexations. Righteous men walk at liberty and walk in safety. 7. This verse is applicable to compassion for the distress of the poor, and the unfeeling disregard shown by the wicked. 8. The scornful mock at things sacred and serious. Men who promote religion, which is true wisdom, turn away the wrath of God. 9. If a wise man dispute with a conceited wrangler, he will be treated with anger or ridicule; and no good is done. 10. Christ told his disciples that they should be hated of all men. The just, whom the blood-thirsty hate, gladly do anything for their salvation.

“Because I called and you refused, I stretched out my hand and no one paid attention;
Therefore, his calamity will come suddenly; Instantly he will be broken and there will be no healing.

“Because I know that you are obstinate, And your neck is an iron sinew And your forehead bronze,
“Yet they did not listen or incline their ears but stiffened their necks in order not to listen or take correction.
“I will also punish him and his descendants and his servants for their iniquity, and I will bring on them and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and the men of Judah all the calamity that I have declared to them– but they did not listen.”‘”
“Will not your creditors rise up suddenly, And those who collect from you awaken? Indeed, you will become plunder for them.
