of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall
meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according
to all that is written in it. For then you will make
your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

"Thus it happened,
when the king [America
is the Land of the Kings/Sovereigns] heard the
words of the Law,
that he tore his clothes. Then the king commanded
Hilkiah, Ahikam the son of Shaphan, Abdon the son of Micah,
Shaphan the scribe, and Asaiah a servant of the king, saying,
of the LORD for me, [. . .] concerning
the words of the book [of the Law] that is found; for great

word [Law] of the LORD,

are written in the book [of the Law] which they have read before
the king of Judah, because they have forsaken Me and burned
[idolatry towards] other [government] gods,

hands. Therefore My wrath will be poured out on this place,
and not be quenched.""
"I [God] brought you up from Egypt [slavery] and brought
you to the land of which I swore to your fathers; and I said,
'I will never break My covenant with you. And
you shall make
no covenant [contract or franchise or agreement of ANY kind]
with the inhabitants of this [corrupt pagan] land; you shall
tear down their
[man/government worshipping socialist] altars.'
But you have not obeyed Me. Why have you done this?
"Therefore I also said,
'I will not
drive them out before you; but they will become as thorns [terrorists
in your side and their gods will be a snare [slavery!] to you.'"
So it was, when the Angel of the LORD spoke these words to
all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up their
voices and wept.
