Yahweh has sent to you all his servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them (but you have not listened, nor inclined your ear to hear) Bible

“inclined your ear to hear.” This is literal. When someone is speaking and we want to hear, we often turn our heads so we can hear better. God is reproving the Judeans because when His prophets spoke no one turned their head to hear better, instead they ignored the prophet.
