The foolish senseless people (Jer 5:20-5:21)

“Declare this!

In the house of Jacob!

Proclaim it in Judah!

‘Hear this!

O foolish people!

O senseless people!

You have eyes,

But you do not see.

You have ears,

But you do not hear.”

Yahweh wants Jeremiah to proclaim and declare to the house of Jacob in Judah that they are foolish and senseless people. They have eyes, but do not see. They have ears, but they do not hear.
