53:22  How disgraceful of you
53:23  These concepts that you and your forefathers have invented are simply none senses. God has never sanctioned it. The fact of the matter is that these people simply follow their lusts in spite of the fact that the Lord’s guidance is offered to them
53:24  Should man’s whims be materializes
