7:13 You also have done all these things, says the Lord, and I have spoken to you over and over again. 1 But you have not listened! You have refused to respond when I called you to repent! 2 7:14 So I will destroy this temple which I have claimed as my own, 3 this temple that you are trusting to protect you. I will destroy this place that I gave to you and your ancestors, 4 just like I destroyed Shiloh. 5
1 tn This reflects a Hebrew idiom (e.g., 7:25; 11:7; 25:3, 4), i.e., an infinitive of a verb meaning “to do something early [or eagerly]” followed by an infinitive of another verb of action. Cf. HALOT 1384 s.v. שָׁכַם Hiph.2.
2 tn Heb “I called to you and you did not answer.” The words “to repent” are not in the text but are supplied in the translation for clarity.
5 tn Heb “I will do to this house which I…in which you put…and to this place which…as I did to Shiloh.”
