Judah's people make the Lord very angry
15 The Lord, the God of their ancestors, sent men to them with messages from him. He was very careful to tell them that they must not do those things. He knew that he would have to punish them. But he did not want to punish them because he was sorry for his people and for his house. 16 But they said that the men with God's messages were silly. And they thought that God's words were not important. They said that his prophets were saying silly things. Then the Lord became very angry with his people until nothing could help them.
