The Lord said to his people: 1  “You are standing at the crossroads. So consider your path. 2  Ask where the old, reliable paths 3  are. Ask where the path is that leads to blessing 4  and follow it. If you do, you will find rest for your souls.” But they said, “We will not follow it!”

tn Heb “Stand at the crossroads and look.”

tn Heb “the ancient path,” i.e., the path the Lord set out in ancient times (cf. Deut 32:7).

tn Heb “the way of/to the good.”
