Is it not enough for the house of Judah to commit the detestable things they are practicing here, that they must also fill the land with violence(A) and repeatedly provoke Me to anger,(B) even putting the branch to their nose?[a][b] 18 Therefore I will respond with wrath.(C) I will not show pity or spare them.(D) Though they cry out in My ears with a loud voice,(E) I will not listen to them.”
