No, they must come and do them right here in the Temple and make me even more angry. Look how they insult me in the most offensive way possible![a] 18 They will feel all the force of my anger. I will not spare them or show them any mercy. They will shout prayers to me as loud as they can, but I will not listen to them.”Read full chapter
