because they have not listened to my words,” says Yahweh, “that I sent to them by my servants the prophets, rising up early and sending them again and again; but you would not listen,” says Yahweh. Bible see other translations

“rising up early and sending them.” This is an idiom meaning to send again and again. The idea is that God rose up early and sent His prophets, and sent them over and over as the day progressed. The REV has kept the idiom but inserted the meaning of the idiom by adding “again and again” in italics. [For more on this idiom and where it occurs, see commentary on Jeremiah 26:5].
