English Standard Version
21 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: (A)“Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices, and eat the flesh. 22 For in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, I did not speak to your fathers or command them (B)concerning burnt offerings and sacrifices. 23 But this command I gave them: (C)‘Obey my voice, and (D)I will be your God, and you shall be my people. (E)And walk in all the way that I command you, (F)that it may be well with you.’ 24 (G)But they did not obey or incline their ear, (H)but walked in their own counsels and (I)the stubbornness of their evil hearts, and (J)went backward and not forward. 25 From the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt to this day, (K)I have persistently sent all my servants the prophets to them, day after day. 26 (L)Yet they did not listen to me or incline their ear, (M)but stiffened their neck. (N)They did worse than their fathers.
27 (O)“So you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to you. (P)You shall call to them, but they will not answer you. 28 And you shall say to them, ‘This is the nation that did not obey the voice of the Lord their God, and did not accept discipline; (Q)truth has perished; it is cut off from their lips.Read full chapter
