Jacob declares ten woes against various behaviors, which appear to be related to the Ten Commandments. Both sets are part of an ancient covenant formula wherein the stipulations and consequences of breaking the covenant are identified. We learn from this that while God is merciful and we can always repent, God does not just let anything go: there are commandments and we are expected to keep them.
