Isaiah 29:11-12

You Have Everything Backward

11-12What you've been shown here is somewhat like a letter in a sealed envelope. If you give it to someone who can read and tell her, "Read this," she'll say, "I can't. The envelope is sealed." And if you give it to someone who can't read and tell him, "Read this," he'll say, "I can't read."

13-14The Master said:

"These people make a big show of saying the right thing,

but their hearts aren't in it.

Because they act like they're worshiping me

but don't mean it,

I'm going to step in and shock them awake,

astonish them, stand them on their ears.

The wise ones who had it all figured out

will be exposed as fools.

The smart people who thought they knew everything

will turn out to know nothing."
