The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD:
21"Hear the words of this covenant, and speak to the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
You shall say to them, Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel: 2Cursed be the man who does not hear the words of this covenant
that I commanded your fathers when I brought them out of the land of Egypt, 3from the iron furnace, saying, 4Listen to my voice, and do all that I command you. 5So shall you be my people, and I will be your God,
56that I may confirm the oath that I swore to your fathers, 7to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as at this day." Then I answered, "So be it, LORD."
And the LORD said to me, 8"Proclaim all these words in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem: 9Hear the words of this covenant and do them.
For I solemnly warned your fathers when I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, 10warning them persistently, even to this day, saying, 11Obey my voice.
812Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, 13but everyone walked in the stubbornness of his evil heart. Therefore I brought upon them all 14the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do, but they did not."
