15 The Lord God of their ancestors[b] continually warned them through his messengers,[c] for he felt compassion for his people and his dwelling place. 16 But they mocked God’s messengers, despised his warnings,[d] and ridiculed his prophets.[e] Finally the Lord got very angry at his people and there was no one who could prevent his judgment.[f]
