God's Dealings With Israel For His Name's Sake

29 So I asked them, "What is the high place to which you're going?' That's why the name of the place has been called Bamah to this day."' 30 "Therefore you are to say to Israel's house, "This is what the Lord GOD says: "Will you defile yourselves like your ancestors did by acting as a prostitute, consistent with their horrible deeds? 31 When you present your gifts and make your sons pass through the fire, you continue to defile yourselves with your idols to this day. Should I be inquired of by you, you house of Israel? As I live," declares the LORD, "I certainly won't be inquired of by you."
