27 Therefore, you handed them over to the power of their enemies who made them suffer.
But when they cried out to you in their suffering,
        you heard them from heaven.
Because you are merciful,
        you gave them saviors who saved them from the power of their enemies.
28 But after they had rest from this, they again started doing evil against you.
        So you gave them over to the power of their enemies who ruled over them.
Yet when they turned and cried to you,
        you heard from heaven and rescued them many times because of your great mercy.
29         You also warned them to return to your Instruction,
but they acted arrogantly and didn’t obey your commands.
        They sinned against your judgments,
            even though life comes by keeping them.[a]
        They turned a stubborn shoulder, became headstrong, and wouldn’t obey.
