28 But when they were at peace,
    they would turn against you,
and you would hand them over
    to their enemies.
Then they would beg for help,
and because you are merciful,
    you rescued them
    over and over again.
29 You warned them to turn back
and discover true life
    by obeying your laws.
But they stubbornly refused
    and continued to sin.
30 For years, you were patient,
    and your Spirit[a] warned them
with messages spoken
    by your prophets.
Still they refused to listen,
and you handed them over
    to their enemies.
