English Standard Version
Chapter 8 3
Death shall be preferred to life by all the remnant that remains of this evil family in all the places where I have driven them, declares the LORD of hosts. 4
“You shall say to them, Thus says the LORD: When men fall, do they not rise again? If one turns away, does he not return? 5
Why then has this people turned away in perpetual backsliding? They hold fast to deceit; they refuse to return. 6
I have paid attention and listened, but they have not spoken rightly; no man relents of his evil, saying, ‘What have I done?’ Everyone turns to his own course, like a horse plunging headlong into battle.
