1:18 “Come, let’s consider your options,” says the Lord.

“Though your sins have stained you like the color red,

you can become white like snow;

though they are as easy to see as the color scarlet,

you can become white like wool.

19 If you have a willing attitude and obey,

then you will again eat the good crops of the land.

20 But if you refuse and rebel,

you will be devoured by the sword.”

Know for certain that the Lord has spoken.
