"People listened to me expectantly, waiting in silence for my counsel.
After I had spoken, they spoke no more; my words fell gently on their ears.
She has not acknowledged that I was the one who gave her the grain, the new wine and oil, who lavished on her the silver and gold-- which they used for Baal.
They set up kings without my consent; they choose princes without my approval. With their silver and gold they make idols for themselves to their own destruction.
