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
11:7 For I solemnly warned your ancestors to obey me. 3 I warned them again and again, 4 ever since I delivered them out of Egypt until this very day.
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.
3 tn Heb “warned them…saying, ‘Obey me.’” However, it allows the long sentence to be broken up easier if the indirect quote is used.
