Isaiah 29:13 ” The Lord says: These people come near to Me with their mouth and honor Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me.”

In Matthew 15:7 Jesus quoted this Scripture and very bluntly called those guilty of it hypocrites. Those having the “appearance” of wisdom, worship, and humility…but instead possessing calloused, stubborn, and unfeeling hearts. Out of their mouths coming only empty words…their lips spewing mere talk…or as Jeremiah 12:2 sadly observed, “God, You are always on their lips but far from their hearts.”
