When Israel Lost the Vision of God, 3000 People Among Them Perished

“Where there is no vision, the people perish” is a part of a proverb frequently cited only in part, shortchanging the hearers of the truth

Israel and the Golden Calf | painting by Nicolas Poussin 1633–4

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. (Proverbs 29:18, KJV)




Like the noble Bereans, we are followers of Christ who search and research the Scriptures daily under the light of the Holy Spirit in order to understand and know God and disciple others to observe and do what He commanded us.
