34 “Yerushalayim! Yerushalayim! You kill the prophets! You stone those who are sent to you! How often I wanted to gather your children, just as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, but you refused! 35 Look! God is abandoning your house to you! I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of Adonai!’”
Adonai gives us authority over ourselves. It is in executing that authority that determines how we shall live, by placing Adonai as our Lord and submitting to Him or by putting our own desires above all others and being cast out of his presence.
