Isaiah 48: 17- 19

48:17Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the Lord, your God, who teaches you beneficial things, who guides you in the way that you walk.
48:18If only you had paid attention to my commandments! Your peace would have been like a river, and your justice would have been like the waves of the sea,
48:19and your offspring would have been like the sand, and the stock from your loins would have been like its stones. His name would not have passed away, nor would it have been worn away before my face.

Matthew 11: 16- 19

11:16But to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplace,
11:17who, calling out to their companions, say: ‘We played music for you, and you did not dance. We lamented, and you did not mourn.’
11:18For John came neither eating nor drinking; and they say, ‘He has a demon.’
11:19The Son of man came eating and drinking; and they say, ‘Behold, a man who eats voraciously and who drinks wine, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is justified by her sons.”
