Jeremiah 5:4 I said, "These are only the poor; they have no sense; for they do not know the way of the LORD, the justice of their God"
Jeremiah tries to make excuses for the poor among his people: they have no education, they have not learned the way of the LORD. But the text goes on that the rich, who do have education, have no sense and have not followed the LORD. God's judgement will come upon them all. How much more so is this true in our day when everyone has education and the ways of the LORD have been declared for centuries?
