11  I gave them my decrees and made known to them my laws, for the man who obeys them will live by them. 12  Also I gave them my Sabbaths as a sign between us, so they would know that I the LORD made them holy.

13  " `Yet the people of Israel rebelled against me in the desert. They did not follow my decrees but rejected my laws--although the man who obeys them will live by them--and they utterly desecrated my Sabbaths. So I said I would pour out my wrath on them and destroy them in the desert.

-- 16  because they rejected my laws and did not follow my decrees and desecrated my Sabbaths. For their hearts were devoted to their idols.

19  I am the LORD your God; follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. 20  Keep my Sabbaths holy, that they may be a sign between us. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God."

21  " `But the children rebelled against me: They did not follow my decrees, they were not careful to keep my laws--although the man who obeys them will live by them--and they desecrated my Sabbaths. So I said I would pour out my wrath on them and spend my anger against them in the desert.

24  because they had not obeyed my laws but had rejected my decrees and desecrated my Sabbaths, and their eyes lusted after their fathers' idols.
