Context
NETBible

The Lord said to his people: 1  “You are standing at the crossroads. So consider your path. 2  Ask where the old, reliable paths 3  are. Ask where the path is that leads to blessing 4  and follow it. If you do, you will find rest for your souls.” But they said, “We will not follow it!”
