{2 Kings 21:10} And the LORD 3068 spake 1696 z8762 by 3027 his servants 5650 the prophets, 5030 saying, 559 z8800
"And the LORDª spakeª° to¹ Manasseh,ª and to¹ his people:ª but they would not¹ hearken.ª°" {2Ch 33:10} + "And the LORDª Godª of their fathersª sentª° to¹ them byª his messengers,ª rising up betimes,ª° and sending;ª° because¹ he had compassionª° on¹ his people,ª and on¹ his dwelling place:ª" {2Ch 36:15} + "Nevertheless they were disobedient,ª° and rebelledª° against thee, and castª°¹ thy lawª behindª their backs,ª and slewª° thy prophetsª which¹ testifiedª° against them to turnª° them to¹ thee, and they wroughtª° greatª provocations.ª" {Neh 9:26} + "Yet manyª yearsª didst thou forbearª°¹ them, and testifiedstª° against them by thy spiritª inª thy prophets:ª yet would they not¹ give ear:ª° therefore gavestª° thou them into the handª of the peopleª of the lands.ª" {Neh 9:30} + "Wherefore,ªª behold,ª° Iª sendª° untoª youª prophets,ª andª wise men,ª andª scribes:ª andª [some] ofª themª ye shall killª° andª crucify;ª° andª [some] ofª themª shall ye scourgeª° inª yourª synagogues,ª andª persecuteª° [them] fromª cityª toª city:ª ...

The prophets were sent in the first place to teach them the knowledge of God, to remind them of their duty, and direct them in it. If they succeeded not in that, their next work was to reprove them for their sins, and to set them in view before them, that they might repent and reform, and return to their duty. If in this they prevailed not, their next work was to foretell the judgments of God, that the terror of them might awaken to repentance those who would not be made sensible of the obligations of his love; or else that the execution of them, in their season, might be a demonstration of the divine mission of the prophets who foretold them. They were made judges to those who would not hear and receive them as teachers. - Henry.
