11:9 The Lord said to me, “The people of Judah and the citizens of Jerusalem have plotted rebellion against me! 1 11:10 They have gone back to the evil ways 2 of their ancestors of old who refused to obey what I told them. They, too, have paid allegiance to 3 other gods and worshiped them. Both the nation of Israel and the nation of Judah 4 have violated the covenant I made with their ancestors. 11:11 So I, the Lord, say this: 5 ‘I will soon bring disaster on them which they will not be able to escape! When they cry out to me for help, I will not listen to them. 11:12 Then those living in the towns of Judah and in Jerusalem will 6 go and cry out for help to the gods to whom they have been sacrificing. However, those gods will by no means 7 be able to save them when disaster strikes them.
