Jeremiah 4:22 "For my people are foolish; they know me not; they are stupid children; they have no understanding. They are 'wise'--in doing evil! But how to do good they know not."
In the Book of Jeremiah, the prophet Jeremiah is called by God to confront the people of Judah about their rejection of God and turning away from Him. The situation is sad because living without God has become the norm and as a result, the people have no understanding or knowledge of God.
"My people are foolish; they know me not; they are stupid children; they have no understanding. They are 'wise'--in doing evil! But how to do good, they know not" (Jeremiah 4: 22).
