They have turned their backs to me, and not their faces, and though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them over and over, yet they have not listened and received instruction. Bible see other translations

“rising up early and teaching them.” The phrase “rising up early” is an idiom meaning to do something again and again. The idea is that God rose up early and taught Judah over and over as the day progressed. The REV has kept the idiom but inserted the meaning of the idiom by adding “over and over” in italics.
