In what context should I take the following passages?..
“All their wickedness is in Gilgal: for there I hated them:
for the wickedness of their doings I will drive them out of mine house,
I will love them no more: all their princes are revolters.”
“For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness:
neither shall evil dwell with thee.
The foolish shall not stand in thy sight:
thou hatest all workers of iniquity.”
“As it is written, Jacob have I loved,
but Esau have I hated.”
Leviticus 20:13, 23
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman,
both of them have committed an abomination:
they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation,
which I cast out before you: for they committed all these things,
and therefore I abhorred them.”
“And when the Lord saw it, he abhorred them,
because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.”
Is there a misunderstanding in translation or context I should be educated about?
Also, there’s a certain verse that I forget at the moment which said something like God hardens certain peoples hearts or allows them to live a lie and wills them to perish or something to that effect. Can someone remind me which verse that is if you know what I’m talking about…and how I should understand said verse in the right context?
Thanks in advance
