At the beginning of the reign of Y'hoyakim the son of Yoshiyahu, king of Y'hudah, this word came from ADONAI:
"ADONAI says: 'Stand in the courtyard of ADONAI's house and speak to the people from all the cities in Y'hudah who come to worship at ADONAI's house; say everything I order you to say to them, and don't leave out a word.
Maybe they will listen, and each of them turn from his evil way; then I will be able to relent from the disaster I intend to bring on them because of how evil their deeds are.
So tell them that this is what ADONAI says: "If you will not pay attention to me and live according to my Torah, which I have given you,
and listen to what my servants the prophets, whom I send to you, say - I have sent them frequently, but you haven't listened -
then I will make this house like Shiloh, and I will make this city an object of cursing for all the nations of the earth."'"
