Moreover the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 to me, saying,H559
GoH1980 and cryH7121 in the earsH241 of Jerusalem,H3389 saying,H559 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD;H3068 I rememberH2142 you, the kindnessH2617 of your youth,H5271 the loveH160 of your espousals,H3623 when you wentH3212 afterH310 me in the wilderness,H4057 in a landH776 that was not sown.H2232
IsraelH3478 was holinessH6944 to the LORD,H3068 and the first fruitsH7225 of his increase:H8393 allH3605 that devourH398 him shall offend;H816 evilH7451 shall comeH935 on them, saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
HearH8085 you the wordH1697 of the LORD,H3068 O houseH1004 of Jacob,H3290 and allH3605 the familiesH4940 of the houseH1004 of Israel:H3478
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 WhatH4100 iniquityH5766 have your fathersH1 foundH4672 in me, that they are gone farH7368 from me, and have walkedH3212 afterH310 vanity,H1892 and are becomeH1891 vain?H1891
NeitherH3808 saidH559 they, WhereH346 is the LORDH3068 that broughtH5927 us up out of the landH776 of Egypt,H4714 that ledH3212 us through the wilderness,H4057 through a landH776 of desertsH6160 and of pits,H7745 through a landH776 of drought,H6723 and of the shadowH6757 of death,H6757 through a landH776 that noH3808 manH376 passedH5674 through, and whereH8033 noH3808 manH120 dwelled?H3427
And I broughtH935 you intoH413 a plentifulH3759 country,H776 to eatH398 the fruitH6529 thereof and the goodnessH2898 thereof; but when you entered,H935 you defiledH2930 my land,H776 and madeH7760 my heritageH5159 an abomination.H8441
The priestsH3548 saidH559 not, WhereH346 is the LORD?H3068 and they that handleH8610 the lawH8451 knewH3045 me not: the pastorsH7462 also transgressedH6586 against me, and the prophetsH5030 prophesiedH5012 by Baal,H1168 and walkedH1980 afterH310 things that do not profit.H3276
WhyH3651 I will yetH5750 pleadH7378 with you, saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 and with your children'sH1121 childrenH1121 will I plead.H7378
For passH5674 overH5674 the islesH339 of Chittim,H3794 and see;H7200 and sendH7971 to Kedar,H6938 and considerH995 diligently,H3966 and seeH7200 ifH2005 there be suchH2063 a thing.
Has a nationH1471 changedH4171 their gods,H430 whichH1992 are yet noH3808 gods?H430 but my peopleH5971 have changedH4171 their gloryH3519 for that whichH1992 does not profit.H3276
Be astonished,H8074 O you heavens,H8064 atH5921 this,H2063 and be horriblyH8175 afraid,H8175 be you veryH3966 desolate,H2717 saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
For my peopleH5971 have committedH6213 twoH8147 evils;H7451 they have forsakenH5800 me the fountainH4726 of livingH2416 waters,H4325 and hewedH2672 them out cisterns,H877 brokenH7665 cisterns,H877 that can holdH3557 noH3808 water.H4325
Is IsraelH3478 a servant?H5650 is he a home bornH1004 slave? whyH4069 is he spoiled?H957
The youngH3715 lionsH3715 roaredH7580 on him, and yelled,H5414 H6963 and they madeH7896 his landH776 waste:H8047 his citiesH5892 are burnedH3341 withoutH1097 inhabitant.H3427
AlsoH1571 the childrenH1121 of NophH5297 and TahapanesH8471 have brokenH7462 the crownH6936 of your head.H6936
Have you not procuredH6213 thisH2063 to yourself, in that you have forsakenH5800 the LORDH3068 your God,H430 whenH6256 he ledH3212 you by the way?H1870
And nowH6258 whatH4100 have you to do in the wayH1870 of Egypt,H4714 to drinkH8354 the watersH4325 of Sihor?H7883 or whatH4100 have you to do in the wayH1870 of Assyria,H804 to drinkH8354 the watersH4325 of the river?H5104
Your own wickednessH7451 shall correctH3256 you, and your backslidingsH4878 shall reproveH3198 you: knowH3045 therefore and seeH7200 that it is an evilH7451 thing and bitter,H4751 that you have forsakenH5800 the LORDH3068 your God,H430 and that my fearH6345 is not in you, saidH5002 the LordH136 GODH3069 of hosts.H6635
For of oldH5769 time I have brokenH7665 your yoke,H5923 and burstH5423 your bands;H4147 and you said,H559 I will not transgress;H5647 whenH3588 on everyH3605 highH1364 hillH1389 and underH8478 everyH3605 greenH7488 treeH6086 you wander,H6808 playing the harlot.H2181
Yet I had plantedH5193 you a noble vine,H8321 whollyH3605 a rightH571 seed:H2233 howH349 then are you turnedH2015 into the degenerateH5494 plant of a strangeH5237 vineH1612 to me?
For thoughH518 you washH3526 you with nitre,H5427 and take you muchH7235 soap,H1287 yet your iniquityH5771 is markedH3799 beforeH6440 me, saidH5002 the LordH136 GOD.H3069
HowH349 can you say,H559 I am not polluted,H2930 I have not goneH1980 afterH310 Baalim?H1168 seeH7200 your wayH1870 in the valley,H1516 knowH3045 whatH4100 you have done:H6213 you are a swiftH7031 dromedaryH1072 traversingH8308 her ways;H1870
A wildH6501 assH6501 usedH3928 to the wilderness,H4057 that snuffsH7602 up the windH7307 at her pleasure;H185 H5315 in her occasionH8385 whoH4310 can turnH7725 her away? allH3605 they that seekH1245 her will not wearyH3286 themselves; in her monthH2320 they shall findH4672 her.
WithholdH4513 your footH7272 from being unshod,H3182 and your throatH1627 from thirst:H6773 but you said,H559 There is no hope:H2976 no;H3808 for I have lovedH157 strangers,H2114 and afterH310 them will I go.H3212
As the thiefH1590 is ashamedH1322 whenH3588 he is found,H4672 soH3651 is the houseH1004 of IsraelH3478 ashamed;H954 they, their kings,H4428 their princes,H8269 and their priests,H3548 and their prophets.H5030
SayingH559 to a stock,H6086 You are my father;H1 and to a stone,H68 You have broughtH3205 me forth:H3205 for they have turnedH6437 their backH6203 to me, and not their face:H6440 but in the timeH6256 of their troubleH7451 they will say,H559 Arise,H6965 and saveH3467 us.
But whereH346 are your godsH430 that you have madeH6213 you? let them arise,H6965 ifH518 they can saveH3467 you in the timeH6256 of your trouble:H7451 for according to the numberH4557 of your citiesH5892 are your gods,H430 O Judah.H3063
WhyH4100 will you pleadH7378 with me? you allH3605 have transgressedH6586 against me, saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
In vainH7723 have I smittenH5221 your children;H1121 they receivedH3947 noH3808 correction:H4148 your own swordH2719 has devouredH398 your prophets,H5030 like a destroyingH7843 lion.H738
O generation,H1755 seeH7200 you the wordH1697 of the LORD.H3068 Have I beenH1961 a wildernessH4057 to Israel?H3478 a landH776 of darkness?H3991 whyH4069 sayH559 my people,H5971 We are lords;H7300 we will comeH935 noH3808 moreH5750 to you?
Can a maidH1330 forgetH7911 her ornaments,H5716 or a brideH3618 her attire?H7196 yet my peopleH5971 have forgottenH7911 me daysH3117 withoutH369 number.H4557
WhyH4100 trimH3190 you your wayH1870 to seekH1245 love?H160 thereforeH3651 have you alsoH1571 taughtH3925 the wickedH7451 ones your ways.H1870
AlsoH1571 in your skirtsH3671 is foundH4672 the bloodH1818 of the soulsH5315 of the poorH34 innocents:H5355 I have not foundH4672 it by secret search,H4290 but on allH3605 these.H428
Yet you say,H559 BecauseH3588 I am innocent,H5352 surelyH389 his angerH639 shall turnH7725 from me. Behold,H2005 I will pleadH8199 with you, becauseH5921 you say,H559 I have not sinned.H2398
WhyH4100 gadH235 you aboutH235 so muchH3966 to changeH8138 your way?H1870 you alsoH1571 shall be ashamedH954 of Egypt,H4714 as you were ashamedH954 of Assyria.H804
Yes,H1571 you shall goH3318 forthH3318 from him, and your handsH3027 on your head:H7218 for the LORDH3068 has rejectedH3988 your confidences,H4009 and you shall not prosperH6743 in them.
