In ur hearts do not finkz evil ov each othr.11 "but they refusd 2 pai attenshun; stubbornly they turnd their bakz an stoppd up their ears.12 they made their hearts as hard as flint an wud not listen 2 teh law or 2 teh werdz dat teh lord almighty had sent by his spirit thru teh earlir profets. So teh lord almighty wuz vry angry.13 " when i calld, they did not listen; so when they calld, i wud not listen, sez teh lord almighty.14 i scatterd them wif whirlwind among all teh nashuns, wer they wuz strangers. Teh land wuz left so desolate behind them dat no wan cud come or go. Dis ar teh how they made teh pleasant land desolate. "
