5 and to listen to the words of my servants the prophets whom I send to you urgently, though you have not listened, 5 and if you do not listen to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I have sent to you again and again (though you have not listened),
6 then I will make this house like Shiloh, and I will make this city a curse for all the nations of the earth.'" 6 then I will make this house like Shiloh and this city an object of cursing among all the nations of the earth.' "
