“Then Yahweh said to me.
‘Even if Moses stood before me,
Even if Samuel stood before me,
Yet my heart
Would not turn toward this people.
Send them out of my sight!
Let them go!’”
Yahweh seems determined to let his people go. Yahweh told Jeremiah that even if the great intercessors like Moses and Samuel were to come before him to plead for these people, he would not respond. Yahweh was determined. His heart would not turn toward these people. He wanted them out of his sight. Instead of the “let them go” out of Egypt, now he wanted them to get out of his sight. This was a very strong rejection of his people.
