God is telling Jeremiah that he needs to wait at the gate of the Lord’s house and tell them that they need to correct their ways. He is telling the people that are entering the temple that if they quit their sinful ways then God will help them to be able to enter into the land that was promised to their ancestors. He begins to ask them do you think God delivered you so you can go and worship false gods? God tells them if they continue in the way they are going then God will destroy them and cause them to fall. God also tells them that he has given them numerous chances to change through his word from the previous prophets, but no matter what he does they never seem to want to listen to him.
