And though the LORD has sent all his servants the prophets1 to you again and again, you have not listened or paid any attention.25
They said, "Turn3 now, each of you, from your evil ways and your evil practices, and you can stay in the land4 the LORD gave to you and your fathers for ever and ever.
Do not follow other gods5 to serve and worship them; do not provoke me to anger with what your hands have made. Then I will not harm you."
"But you did not listen to me," declares the LORD, "and you have provoked6 me with what your hands have made,7 and you have brought harm8 to yourselves."
