Do not follow other gods to serve and worship them; do not arouse my anger with what your hands have made. Then I will not harm you."
Again and again I sent all my servants the prophets to you. They said, "Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and reform your actions; do not follow other gods to serve them. Then you will live in the land I have given to you and your ancestors." But you have not paid attention or listened to me.
