7 Revised Standard Version Passage

1The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD:Jeremiah preaches at the temple. Jr.7.1-15
2"Stand in the gate of the LORD's house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all you men of Judah who enter these gates to worship the LORD. 
3Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will let you dwell in this place. 
4Do not trust in these deceptive words: 'This is the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD, the temple of the LORD.' 
5"For if you truly amend your ways and your doings, if you truly execute justice one with another, 
6if you do not oppress the alien, the fatherless or the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not go after other gods to your own hurt, 
7then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave of old to your fathers for ever. 
8"Behold, you trust in deceptive words to no avail. 
9Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Ba'al, and go after other gods that you have not known, 
10and then come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, 'We are delivered!' - only to go on doing all these abominations? 
11Has this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, I myself have seen it, says the LORD. 
12Go now to my place that was in Shiloh, where I made my name dwell at first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel. 
13And now, because you have done all these things, says the LORD, and when I spoke to you persistently you did not listen, and when I called you, you did not answer, 
14therefore I will do to the house which is called by my name, and in which you trust, and to the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I did to Shiloh. 
15And I will cast you out of my sight, as I cast out all your kinsmen, all the offspring of E'phraim.
