But if you will not hear these words, I swear by myself, says Yahweh, that this house will become a desolation.’ Bible see other translations

“this house.” The king’s palace. As we know from history, the kings of Judah failed to obey the word of Yahweh and the Babylonians came and conquered Judah and destroyed Jerusalem, even burning the Temple of Yahweh.
