For Proverbs 28:18 I read it that they would fall in one moment, not for one moment.
In Jeremiah, I understood it to be talking about the idols, not the people who made them. As such, the idols would be consumed (burned up) in a moment, its futile hold would be made twisted (like intestines), for it is wood.
Have I messed up again?
