“¶ Therefore thus saith the Lord of hostes; Because yee haue not heard my words:”
King James Version (KJV)
5. They sayd, Turne yee againe now euery one from his euill way, and from the euil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the Lord hath giuen vnto you, and to your fathers for euer and euer. 6. And goe not after other Gods to serue them, and to worship them, and prouoke mee not to anger with the workes of your hands, and I will doe you no hurt. 7. Yet yee haue not hearkened vnto me, saith the Lord, that yee might prouoke me to anger with the workes of your hands, to your owne hurt. 8. ¶ Therefore thus saith the Lord of hostes; Because yee haue not heard my words: 9. Behold, I will send and take all the families of the North, saith the Lord, and Nebuchad-rezzar the king of Babylon my seruant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will vtterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetuall desolations. 10. Moreouer, I will take from them the voyce of myrth, and the voice of gladnes, the voice of the bridegrome, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the milstones, & the light of the candle. 11. And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment, and these nations shal serue the king of Babylon seuentie yeeres.
