In their blind conceit, they cannot see how wicked they really are.
In this life they consider themselves fortunate and are applauded for their success.
"But my people would not listen to me. They kept doing whatever they wanted, following the stubborn desires of their evil hearts. They went backward instead of forward.
But the people replied, "Don't waste your breath. We will continue to live as we want to, stubbornly following our own evil desires."
Then say to the king, 'This is what the LORD says: You burned the scroll because it said the king of Babylon would destroy this land and empty it of people and animals.
