therefore I will do to the house that is called by my name, in which you trust, even to the place that I gave to you and to your fathers, just as I did to Shiloh. Bible see other translations

“the house that is called by my name.” The Temple.

“in which you trust.” The false prophets and people “trusted” a lie: that the very presence of the Temple would protect them no matter how they behaved. This is a good example of false religion, and there are many false beliefs that involve “things” protecting or bringing God’s blessing. God protects us, and if we are evil we walk away from His protection no matter how many “religious things” we have or do.
