4 (A)The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even (B)the wicked for the day of trouble.
4 The Lord works out everything to its proper end(A)— even the wicked for a day of disaster.(B)
(A)“A stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.”
They stumble because they disobey the word, (B)as they were destined to do.
“A stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.”[a](A)
They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.(B)
