While you were doing all these things, declares the LORD, I spoke to you again and again, but you did not listen; I called you, but you did not answer.
From the time your ancestors left Egypt until now, day after day, again and again I sent you my servants the prophets.
From the time I brought your ancestors up from Egypt until today, I warned them again and again, saying, "Obey me."
For twenty-three years--from the thirteenth year of Josiah son of Amon king of Judah until this very day--the word of the LORD has come to me and I have spoken to you again and again, but you have not listened.
