the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
(d) His Will is Perfect Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
2. God's Pursuit Of His People
10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.

(c) He Had Sustained Them - 10 he led him about
(d) He Had Schooled Them - 10 he instructed him

3. God's Provision For His People
13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;
4. God's Problem With His People
15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
They had Become:-
(a) Possessive - Jeshurun waxed fat
(b) Proud - then he forsook God which made him
(c) Presumptuous - and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.

with abominations provoked they him to anger.

They were Flawed - O,
They were Foolish - that they were wise

(b) The Change Demanded - God was seeking
Discernment - 29 O that they were wise
