14 Therefore you must not pray for this people, and you must not lift up for them a cry of entreaty, or a prayer, for I will not listen in the time of their calling to me, in the time of their trouble.

15 What rights has my beloved in my house[a]
    when she has done many wicked things?[b]
Can the flesh of holiness pass over you?
    For you engage in your wickedness,[c] then you exult.
16 Yahweh called your name, ‘A leafy olive tree, beautiful with fine fruit.’[d]
With the sound of a great storm he will set fire to it,
    and its branches will be good for nothing.
