15 Listen carefully to me!
Stop being so smug, because the Eternal has spoken.
16 It is time to honor the Eternal your God before He makes the darkness fall
and you stumble on the darkening mountains.
You will long for the light,
but He will make the darkness deepen as the gloom settles in.
17 If you still won’t listen, I will weep for you in secret.
From the depths of my soul, I will cry bitter tears,
Because the Eternal’s own flock will be taken captive.
