|Jeremiah 26:2-6 |
2 "Thus says the Lord; Stand in the court of the LORD's house, and speak to all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the LORD's house, all the words that I command you to speak to them; diminish not a word.
3 So that they might listen to and heed me so that every man turns from his evil way, and I would change my mind of the destruction that I intend to do to them because of the evil of their doings.
4 And you shall say to them, 'Thus says the Lord; If you will not heed me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you;
5 If you will not listen to and obey the words of my servants the prophets, whom I have sent to you urgently and continually, though you have not listened;
6 Then will I make this house like Shiloh,1 and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.'"
1 The Amplified Bible explains: Shiloh was the home of the Tent of Meeting, abandoned and later destroyed after the ark was captured by the Philistines.
