1  Hashem said to me, “Even if Moshe and Shmuel were to intercede with Me, I would not be won over to that people. Dismiss them from My presence, and let them go forth!

va-YO-mer a-do-NAI ay-LAI im ya-a-MOD mo-SHEH ush-mu-AYL l’-fa-NAI AYN naf-SHEE el ha-AM ha-ZEH sha-LAKH may-al pa-NAI v’-yay-TZAY-u

א  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהֹוָה אֵלַי אִם־יַעֲמֹד מֹשֶׁה וּשְׁמוּאֵל לְפָנַי אֵין נַפְשִׁי אֶל־הָעָם הַזֶּה שַׁלַּח מֵעַל־פָּנַי וְיֵצֵאוּ׃

15:1   Even if Moshe and Shmuel were to intercede with Me

Announcing four causes of destruction that await Israel (death, sword, famine and captivity), Yirmiyahu declares that even the prayers of Moshe and Shmuel would not be able to save the people. Rashi explains that both Moshe and Shmuel were able to induce Israel to repent, before they stood in front of Hashem to intercede on the people’s behalf and ask for mercy. However, God declares, since Yirmiyahu was not successful in influencing the people to change their ways, his prayers are ineffective. Without repentance, even the prayers of Moshe and Shmuel, which had been accepted in the past, would not be successful at this time.
