23 Your merchants were the world's great men.
By your magic spell all the nations were led astray.
Sometimes when I read Scripture I feel convicted that this is talking about our great nation. The U.S. in so many ways has become great; and in so many ways has led other nations astray.
May God have mercy on the ones he loves. May a remanent be saved from the destruction that these verses speak of. Lord we commit our lives to you. May you be great in us and may our nation turn to you. Amen.
