Yah’s jealousy is roused by his people’s insistence on serving others deities.
Shalom, and happy morning to you. It is sad to think that we as a nation started out at the very top, living in the presence of Yah, being able to witness his might and allowed to hear his voice. Now we are at the very bottom of all peoples, with even the lowliest of Gentile nations rising above us. And what brought on this sad turn of events? Why, no other than our rebellion against Yah, and our open rejection of his laws and ways.
We chose to live like the pagan nations around us rather than live according to Yah’s Torah. This is why he has withdrawn from us and we no longer hear his voice as a people. And many of us continue to follow the practices of the pagan nations to this day, and these Israelites do so while making excuses for their actions. But let us be reminded of how we got here:
15 But Israel soon became fat and unruly; the people grew heavy, plump, and stuffed! Then they abandoned the Elohim who had made them; they made light of the Rock of their salvation. 18 You neglected the Rock who had fathered you; you forgot the Elohim who had given you birth. 19 Yah saw this and drew back, provoked to anger by his own sons and daughters. 20 He said, I will abandon them; then see what becomes of them. For they are a twisted generation, children without integrity. 21 They have roused my jealousy by worshiping things that are not Elohim; they have provoked my anger with their useless idols. Now I will rouse their jealousy through people who are not even a people; I will provoke their anger through the foolish Gentiles.
—Deuteronomy 32:15, 18 – 21
