Bubbles & Thoughts
Be a friend to vs. Be friends with. (mutual)
Dependent only on love for the other person vs. Dependent on mutuality
Isaiah 9:18, 21
For wickedness burneth as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up the lifting up of smoke. Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: they together against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand stretched out still.
For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the of hosts. The ancient and honourable, he the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he the tail. Therefore the will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day. For the leaders of this people cause to err; and led of them destroyed. Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand stretched out still.
Therefore is the anger of the kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand stretched out still.
Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I the , and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:
2 Kings 17:36
But the , who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm, him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship, and to him shall ye do sacrifice.
