Read Jeremiah 18:12 Using Other Translations
And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.
"But they say, 'That is in vain! We will follow our own plans, and will every one act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart.'
But the people replied, “Don’t waste your breath. We will continue to live as we want to, stubbornly following our own evil desires.”
