"Neither did they believe that Jerusalem, that great city, could be destroyed according to the words of the prophets. And they were like unto the Jews who sought to take away the life of my father."
Laman and Lemuel refused to believe or follow the ways of God. And because they were like the Jews, they were not allowed to be given the understanding of God. Even when it was explained to them they neither would nor could understand.
Laman and Lemuel relied on their own knowledge and strength, making it impossible for the words of the prophets to touch them. Only through the power of God could they even partially understand the need to follow if nothing else.
#Laman, #Lemuel believe follow God refuse. Same Jews before know from God receive not. Things from God explain understand not anyway.
#Laman, #Lemuel rely themself know and strong, know thing from god can't. know understand God his power only. Force follow rule commandments give before.
