Hosea 4:4-6

Hos 4:4 Yet do not try to argue your way out of this, or pass the blame on to others, because my argument is against you, priest.
Hos 4:5 You will stumble in the daytime; also the prophet will stumble with you at night-time; and I will destroy your mother.
Hos 4:6 My people are being destroyed because they lack knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

ignorance is not bliss

The popular saying suggests that ignorance is bliss, but that was not the case for Israel’s priests and prophets. They were products of a rebellious nation, children of an unfaithful mother. Their lack of knowledge of God’s word led to further rebellion and transgression by the people. Those who should have had the light of scripture stumbled at it all the time. The LORD held them accountable.

LORD, may those of us who know your word be diligent to pass it on to our generation, and the next.
