Judah Rebuked

12 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, 13 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, 'Go and say to the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, "1Will you not receive instruction by listening to My words?" declares the LORD. 14 "The 2words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, which he commanded his sons not to drink wine, are observed. So they do not drink wine to this day, for they have obeyed their father's command. But I have spoken to you a3again and again; yet you have 4not listened to Me. 15 "Also I have sent to you all My 5servants the prophets, sending them bagain and again, saying: '6Turn now every man from his evil way and amend your deeds, and 7do not go after other gods to worship them. Then you will 8dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your forefathers; but you have not 9inclined your ear or listened to Me. 16 'Indeed, the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have 10observed the command of their father which he commanded them, but this people has not listened to Me.' "' 17 "Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel, 'Behold, 11I am bringing on Judah and on all the inhabitants of Jerusalem all the disaster that I have pronounced against them; because I 12spoke to them but they did not listen, and I have called them but they did not answer.' " 18 Then Jeremiah said to the house of the Rechabites, "Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, 'Because you have 13obeyed the command of Jonadab your father, kept all his commands and done according to all that he commanded you; 19 therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Jonadab the son of Rechab 14shall not lack a man to 15stand before Me calways .""'
