4 yet I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, betimes sending them, saying, Do not, I pray you, commit this abominable thing, which I hate! 5 but they hearkened not neither inclined their ear, by turning from their wickedness, - so as not to burn incense to other gods. 6 Therefore were mine indignation and mine anger poured out, and a fire was kindled in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, - and they became waste and desolate, as at this day.
