New International Version
Take care that what the prophets have said does not happen to you:

It is written in the Prophets: 'They will all be taught by God.' Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me.
But God turned away from them and gave them over to the worship of the sun, moon and stars. This agrees with what is written in the book of the prophets: "'Did you bring me sacrifices and offerings forty years in the wilderness, people of Israel?
The words of the prophets are in agreement with this, as it is written:
