Seek Yahweh, and you will live;
lest he break out like fire
in the house of Joseph,
and it devour,
and there be no one to quench it in Bethel. Bible see other translations

“no one to quench it in Bethel.” When the real battle comes between good and evil, between God and idol gods (or the Devil), godless people will discover that the idols they trusted for support are no help at all.
