7:12 So, go to the place in Shiloh where I allowed myself to be worshiped 1 in the early days. See what I did to it 2 because of the wicked things my people Israel did. 7:13 You also have done all these things, says the Lord, and I have spoken to you over and over again. 3 But you have not listened! You have refused to respond when I called you to repent! 4 7:14 So I will destroy this temple which I have claimed as my own, 5 this temple that you are trusting to protect you. I will destroy this place that I gave to you and your ancestors, 6 just like I destroyed Shiloh. 7
