28 “But after they had rest,
(A)They again did evil before You.
Therefore You left them in the hand of their enemies,
So that they had dominion over them;
Yet when they returned and cried out to You,
You heard from heaven;
And (B)many times You delivered them according to Your mercies,
29 And [a]testified against them,
That You might bring them back to Your law.
Yet they acted [b]proudly,
And did not heed Your commandments,
But sinned against Your judgments,
(C)‘Which if a man does, he shall live by them.’
And they shrugged their shoulders,
[c]Stiffened their necks,
And would not hear.
30 Yet for many years You had patience with them,
And [d]testified (D)against them by Your Spirit (E)in Your prophets.
Yet they would not listen;
(F)Therefore You gave them into the hand of the peoples of the lands.
