JER 17:20 And say unto them, Hear ye the word of the LORD, ye kings of
Judah, and all Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, that enter
in by these gates:
JER 17:21 Thus saith the LORD; Take heed to yourselves, and bear no
burden on the sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem;
JER 17:22 Neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the
sabbath day, neither do ye any work, but hallow ye the sabbath day, as I
commanded your fathers.
JER 17:23 But they obeyed not, neither inclined their ear, but made
their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive instruction.
JER 17:24 And it shall come to pass, if ye diligently hearken unto me,
