2 Chronicles 36:14-16 New Life Version (NLV)
14 Also none of the rulers of the religious leaders and people were faithful. They followed all the sinful things of the nations. And they brought sinful things into the Lord’s house, which the Lord had made holy in Jerusalem.
Jerusalem Is Taken
15 The Lord, the God of their fathers, sent men to speak for Him again and again, because He had loving-pity on His people and on His house. 16 But the people always made fun of the men sent by God. They hated God’s words and laughed at His men who spoke for God, until the Lord was very angry with His people. And there was no way for things to be better.
