Jeremiah 26:3; Ezekiel 12:3; Zephaniah 2:3; Amos 5:15

yIt may be they will listen, and every one turn from his evil way, zthat I may relent of the disaster that I intend to do to them abecause of their evil deeds.


As for you, son of man, prepare for yourself man exile's baggage, and go into exile by day nin their sight. You shall go like an exile from your place to another place nin their sight. oPerhaps they will understand, though1 they are a rebellious house.


wSeek the Lord, xall you humble of the land,

who do his just commands;1

yseek righteousness; seek humility;

yperhaps zyou may be hidden

on the day of the anger of the Lord.


15  hHate evil, and love good,

and establish justice xin the gate;

iit may be that the Lord, the God of hosts,

will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.
