ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;
JER 18:16 To make their land desolate, and a perpetual hissing; every
one that passeth thereby shall be astonished, and wag his head.
JER 18:17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I
will shew them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity.
JER 18:18 Then said they, Come and let us devise devices against
Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from
the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with
the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.
JER 18:19 Give heed to me, O LORD, and hearken to the voice of them
that contend with me.
