Jeremiah 7:23-24

23 But this command I gave them: 1'Obey my voice, and 2I will be your God, and you shall be my people. 3And walk in all the way that I command you, 4that it may be well with you.'
24 5But they did not obey or incline their ear, 6but walked in their own counsels and 7the stubbornness of their evil hearts, and 8went backward and not forward.
