New American Standard Bible
29 And (A)admonished them in order to turn them back to Your Law.
Yet (B)they acted arrogantly and did not listen to Your commandments but sinned against Your ordinances,
(C)Which, if a person [a]follows them, then he will live by them.
And they [b](D)turned a stubborn shoulder and stiffened their neck, and would not listen.
30 (E)However, You remained patient with them for many years,
And (F)admonished them by (G)Your Spirit through Your prophets,
Yet they would not listen.
Therefore You handed them over to the peoples of the lands.
New International Version
29 “You warned(A) them in order to turn them back to your law, but they became arrogant(B) and disobeyed your commands. They sinned against your ordinances, of which you said, ‘The person who obeys them will live by them.’(C) Stubbornly they turned their backs(D) on you, became stiff-necked(E) and refused to listen.(F) 30 For many years you were patient with them. By your Spirit you warned them through your prophets.(G) Yet they paid no attention, so you gave them into the hands of the neighboring peoples.(H)
