“‘Will you steal(A) and murder,(B) commit adultery(C) and perjury,[a](D) burn incense to Baal(E) and follow other gods(F) you have not known, 10 and then come and stand(G) before me in this house,(H) which bears my Name, and say, “We are safe”—safe to do all these detestable things?(I) 11 Has this house,(J) which bears my Name, become a den of robbers(K) to you? But I have been watching!(L) declares the Lord.

12 “‘Go now to the place in Shiloh(M) where I first made a dwelling(N) for my Name,(O) and see what I did(P) to it because of the wickedness of my people Israel. 13 While you were doing all these things, declares the Lord, I spoke(Q) to you again and again,(R) but you did not listen;(S) I called(T) you, but you did not answer.(U) 14 Therefore, what I did to Shiloh(V) I will now do to the house that bears my Name,(W) the temple(X) you trust in, the place I gave to you and your ancestors. 15 I will thrust you from my presence,(Y) just as I did all your fellow Israelites, the people of Ephraim.’(Z)
