Isaiah 48:1-6 NLT
“Listen to me, O family of Jacob,
you who are called by the name of Israel
and born into the family of Judah.
Listen, you who take oaths in the name of the LORD
and call on the God of Israel.
You don’t keep your promises,
even though you call yourself the holy city
and talk about depending on the God of Israel,
whose name is the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.
Long ago I told you what was going to happen.
Then suddenly I took action,
and all my predictions came true.
For I know how stubborn and obstinate you are.
Your necks are as unbending as iron.
Your heads are as hard as bronze.
That is why I told you what would happen;
I told you beforehand what I was going to do.
Then you could never say, ‘My idols did it.
My wooden image and metal god commanded it to happen!’
You have heard my predictions and seen them fulfilled,
but you refuse to admit it.
Now I will tell you new things,
secrets you have not yet heard.
