14 “Therefore rdo not pray for this people, or lift up a cry or prayer on their behalf, ofor I will not listen when they call to me in the time of their trouble.
11 The Lord said to me: r“Do not pray for the welfare of this people.
10 Now therefore ilet me alone, that jmy wrath may burn hot against them and kI may consume them, in order that lI may make a great nation of you.”
14 qLet me alone, that I may destroy them and rblot out their name from under heaven. And sI will make of you a nation mightier and greater than they.’
16 If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask, and jGod will give him life—to those who commit sins that do not lead to death. kThere is sin that leads to death; lI do not say that one should pray for that.
