                Weekly Bible verse

          Hisqi'el 33:7-11.

7 Yaa mucaa namaa! Ani mana Israa'eliif eegduu si godheera, ati immoo dubbii koo dhaga'ii of isaan eeggachiisi! 8 Ani nama jal'aadhaan, "Yaa nama jal'aa! Ati dhugumaan in duuta" yommuun jedhu, ati immoo inni jal'aan sun karaa isaa irraa akka deebi'uuf of hin eeggachiiftu yoo ta'e, inni jal'aan sun yakka isaatiin in du'a; ani immoo dhiiga isaa harka kee keessaa nan barbaada; 9 ati garuu isa jal'aa sana karaa isaa irraa akka deebi'uuf utuma of eeggachiiftuu, inni isa irraa deebi'uu yoo dhiise, inni yakka isaatiin in du'a; ati garuu of in oolchita. 10 Yaa mucaa namaa! Mana Israa'elitti dubbadhuu, "Isin, 'Irra-daddarbaan keenyaa fi cubbuun keenya gad nu qabu isaan keessattis in tortorra, attamittis jiraanna ree?' jettan" jedhi! 11 Ati isaanitti dubbadhuu, "Ani jiraataa dha! 'Namni jal'aan karaa isaatii akka deebi'uu fi akka jiraatu malee, ani du'a nama jal'aatti hin gammadu. Deebi'aa! Isin yaa mana Israa'el maaliif duutu? Karaa keessan isa hamaattii deebi'aa!' jedha Waaqayyo gooftaan" jedhi! Ameen.
