Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 7 Be silent in the presence of the Lord GOD,1 for the day of the LORD is at hand; for the LORD has prepared a sacrifice, he has invited his guests. [When you wait on God, how can you hear if you are talking to Him? He knows everything you want, he knows everything you need before you can ask.]

1 Until we are cleansed enough for God's Spirit to control our words and thoughts, even our prayers are an abomination to God. So be silent before the Lord. Listen and watch in silence; wait for the Lord to speak. Don't babble on thinking to be heard with many words. The Lord knows your thoughts before you can form words to express them. Be still and know that I am God. Psa 46:10. The thoughts of the wicked are shamefully vile and exceedingly offensive to the Lord, but the words of the pure are pleasing words to Him. Pro 15:26. Do not be rash with your mouth, and let not your heart be hasty to utter a word before God. For God is in heaven, and you are on earth; therefore let your words be few. For a dream comes with much business and painful effort, and a fool's voice with many words. Ecc 5:2-3. Be silent, oh all flesh before the Lord. Zech 2:13.

Be not rash with your mouth, and let not your heart be hasty to utter a word before God.
For God is in heaven, and you are on earth; therefore let your words be few.
For a dream comes with much business and painful effort, and a fool's voice with many words.
Ecc 5:2-3.
