Are people really so foolish? It seems to me that by now the people would understand that the LORD is with Moses and that He is guiding Moses steps. It would seem that the people would understand that it is their foolishness that has brought them to the place they are right now. It would seem that the people would have a healthy fear of Moses and YHWH. It would seem… Yet for some reason they don’t. They don’t understand that when they trust / ave faith in YHWH, He guides and blesses them. They don’t understand that obedience is better than sacrifice. They don’t understand that the more we rebel against God, the more difficult it is for us. We just don’t seem to get it!
