I will destine you for the sword, and all of you will fall in the slaughter; for I called but you did not answer, I spoke but you did not listen. You did evil in my sight and chose what displeases me."
But the LORD said to me, "Do not say, 'I am too young.' You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.
"This is what the LORD says: Stand in the courtyard of the LORD's house and speak to all the people of the towns of Judah who come to worship in the house of the LORD. Tell them everything I command you; do not omit a word.
You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious.
"'When I called, they did not listen; so when they called, I would not listen,' says the LORD Almighty.
