There will be no need at all to teach their fellow-citizens or brothers by saying, ‘You should know the Lord Jehovah,’ since everyone will know me inwardly, from the most unlikely to the most distinguished.

Beware of them all, for they will one day be stripped of honor, and the judgment they receive will be severe.”
