QUESTION:
(from AMPLIFIED BIBLE):

Ezekiel 31:2

Son of man, say to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to his multitude: Whom are you like in your greatness?

ONLY APPROPRIATE ANSWER:

A. Call, Divine
1. TO REPENTANCE

ALL VERSES IN CONTEMPORARY ENGLISH VERSION (CEV)unless otherwise noted.

a. Jeremiah 35:15

You refused to listen to my prophets, who kept telling you, "Stop doing evil and worshiping other gods! Start obeying the LORD, and he will let you live in this land he gave your ancestors."

b. Ezekiel 33:11
Tell them that as surely as I am the living LORD God, I don't like to see wicked people die. I enjoy seeing them turn from their sins and live. So if the Israelites want to live, they must stop sinning and turn back to me.

c. Hosea 6:1-3

1
Let's return to the LORD. He has torn us to shreds, but he will bandage our wounds and make us well.
2
In two or three days he will heal us and restore our strength that we may live with him.
3
Let's do our best to know the LORD. His coming is as certain as the morning sun; he will refresh us like rain renewing the earth in the springtime.

B. Wisdom’s Call
Proverbs 1: 20,32, 33

20
Wisdom [ NOTE ] shouts in the streets wherever crowds gather.
32
Sin and self-satisfaction bring destruction and death to stupid fools.
33
But if you listen to me, you will be safe and secure without fear of disaster."

[ NOTE ]
Wisdom: In the book of Proverbs the word "wisdom" is sometimes used as though wisdom were a supernatural being who was with God at the time of creation.
C. Divine Ability To raise up children from stones

Luke 3:8

Do something to show that you really have given up your sins. Don't start saying that you belong to Abraham's family. God can turn these stones into children for Abraham.
[ NOTE ]

[ NOTE ]
Children for Abraham: The Jewish people thought they were God's chosen people because of God's promises to their ancestor Abraham.
[ MY NOTE ]
Past promises, past deliverances cannot provide current promises, current deliverances.
