So now, tell the people of Judah and the citizens of Jerusalem 1 this: The Lord says, ‘I am preparing to bring disaster on you! I am making plans to punish you. 2 So, every one of you, stop the evil things you have been doing. 3 Correct the way you have been living and do what is right.’ 4
I sent all my servants the prophets to warn you over and over again. They said, “Every one of you, stop doing the evil things you have been doing and do what is right. 1 Do not pay allegiance to other gods 2 and worship them. Then you can continue to live in this land that I gave to you and your ancestors.” But you did not pay any attention or listen to me.
