In the beginning of the reign of Jehoiakim the son of Josiahking of Judah came this word from the LORD,saying ,
Thus saith the LORD;Stand in the court of the LORD'Shouse, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD'Shouse, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them; diminish not a word:3
If so be they will hearken , and turn every man from his evilway, that I may repent me of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings.4
And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; If ye will not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I have setbefore you,
To hearken to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I sent unto you, both rising up early , and sending them, but ye have not hearkened ;
Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.
