Yet he sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto
To reprove them for their sin, to warn them of their danger, to exhort them to their duty, and endeavour to restore them, and reduce them to the obedience and worship, of God; such was his clemency, goodness, and condescension to them, before he executed his wrath upon them:
and they testified against them;
against their sins, and declared what would befall them, and called heaven and earth to witness for God and against them:
but they would not give ear:
to their reproofs, admonitions, cautions, and exhortations, but went on in their own ways.
