Isaiah 9:12 The Syrians on the east and the Philistines on the west devour Israel with open mouth. For all this His anger has not turned away, and His hand is stretched out still.
Israel was being attacked on both sides, but God's anger at their idolatry and disobedience was unabated. His hand still brought judgement against His people because their behaviour remained unchanged. Do we ignore God's challenges and rebukes in our lives? Then we should expect them to continue until we start to pay attention.
