Confession 2.6 | KJV
I must lament and confess my omissions of my duty, my neglect of it and triflings in it; and that I have done so little since I came into the world of the great work I was sent into the world about, so very little to answer the end of my creation or of my redemption, of my birth and of my baptism; and that I have profited no more by the means of grace.
I have been as a fig-tree planted in the vineyard, and thou hast come many years seeking fruit from me but hast found none; and therefore I might justly be cut down and cast into the fire for cumbering the ground: Luke 13:6-7(KJV) Thou hast come looking for grapes, but behold wild grapes; Isaiah 5:4(KJV) for I have been an empty vine bringing forth fruit unto myself. Hosea 10:1(KJV)
I have not known or improved the day of my visitation; Luke 19:44(KJV) have not provided meat in summer nor gathered food in harvest, though I have had guides, overseers, and rulers. Proverbs 6:7-8(KJV)
I am slow of heart to understand and believe; Luke 24:25(KJV) and whereas for the time I might have been a teacher of others, I am yet to learn the first principles of the oracles of God: have need of milk and cannot bear strong meat. Hebrews 5:12(KJV)
I have come before thee as thy people come and have sat before thee as thy people sit and have heard thy words, when my heart at the same time has been going after my covetousness. Ezekiel 33:31(KJV) And thus have I brought the torn and the lame and the sick for sacrifice; have offered that to my God which I would not have offered to my governor; Malachi 1:8(KJV) and have vowed and sacrificed to the Lord a corrupt thing, when I had in my flock a male. Malachi 1:14(KJV)
