8 Hear me, my people,d and I will warn you—
if you would only listen to me, Israel!
9 You shall have no foreign gode among you;
you shall not worship any god other than me.
who brought you up out of Egypt.f
Israel would not submit to me.i
12 So I gave them overj to their stubborn hearts
to follow their own devices.
13 “If my people would only listen to me,k
if Israel would only follow my ways,
14 how quickly I would subduel their enemies
and turn my hand againstm their foes!
15 Those who hate the Lord would cringen before him,
and their punishment would last forever.
16 But you would be fed with the finest of wheat;o
with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
