We have not listened1 to your servants the prophets,2 who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our fathers,3 and to all the people of the land.
"Lord, you are righteous,4 but this day we are covered with shame5--the men of Judah and people of Jerusalem and all Israel, both near and far, in all the countries where you have scattered6 us because of our unfaithfulness7 to you.88
O LORD, we and our kings, our princes and our fathers are covered with shame because we have sinned against you.99
The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving,10 even though we have rebelled against him;1110
we have not obeyed the LORD our God or kept the laws he gave us through his servants the prophets.1211
All Israel has transgressed13 your law14 and turned away, refusing to obey you. "Therefore the curses15 and sworn judgments16 written in the Law of Moses, the servant of God, have been poured out on us, because we have sinned17 against you.
