We don't hear many things but we hear many things. There are laws but many times we ignore the law.
I believe people can be stubborn. If we like an idea, then we hear the idea. If we hate the idea then we reject the idea.
Israel struggle with God. God talks and many times Israel don't listen. People can say the Jews are stubborn but all people are stubborn. We have the Bible but many times we don't follow the Bible. There are times we forget God or we understand the truth but enjoy the sin.
There are many Old Testament laws, no human being can follow the Old Testaments laws. There are several hundred of laws in the Old Testament. The Jews want to obey the law but it is impossible. There is sin, everyone will sin. The Jews have followed other gods.
