God’s Case Against Israel

2Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,H1697H3068H559 2Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; I remember thee, the kindness of thy youth, the love of thine espousals, when thou wentest after me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown.H1980H7121H241H3389H559H559H3068H2142H2617H5271H160H3623H3212H310H4057H776H2232 3Israel was holiness unto the LORD, and the firstfruits of his increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, saith the LORD.H3478H6944H3068H7225H8393H398H816H7451H935H5002H3068 4Hear ye the word of the LORD, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel:H8085H1697H3068H1004H3290H4940H1004H3478 5Thus saith the LORD, What iniquity have your fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me, and have walked after vanity, and are become vain?H559H3068H5766H1H4672H7368H3212H310H1892H1891 6Neither said they, Where is the LORD that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, that led us through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and of pits, through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, through a land that no man passed through, and where no man dwelt?H559H3068H5927H776H4714H3212H4057H776H6160H7745H776H6723H6757H776H376H5674H120H3427 7And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled my land, and made mine heritage an abomination.H935H3759H776H398H6529H2898H935H2930H776H7760H5159H8441 8The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.H3548H559H3068H8610H8451H3045H7462H6586H5030H5012H1168H1980H310H3276 9Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith the LORD, and with your children's children will I plead.H7378H5002H3068H1121H1121H7378 10For pass over the isles of Chittim, and see; and send unto Kedar, and consider diligently, and see if there be such a thing.H5674H339H3794H7200H7971H6938H995H3966H7200 11Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.H1471H3235H430H430H5971H4171H3519H3276 12Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the LORD.H8074H8064H8175H3966H2717H5002H3068 13For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.H5971H6213H8147H7451H5800H4726H2416H4325H2672H877H7665H877H3557H4325 14Is Israel a servant? is he a homeborn slave? why is he spoiled?H3478H5650H1004H3211H4069H957 15The young lions roared upon him, and yelled, and they made his land waste: his cities are burned without inhabitant.H3715H7580H5414H6963H7896H776H8047H5892H3341H3427 16Also the children of Noph and Tahapanes have broken the crown of thy head.H1121H5297H8471H7462H6936 17Hast thou not procured this unto thyself, in that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, when he led thee by the way?H6213H5800H3068H430H6256H3212H1870 18And now what hast thou to do in the way of Egypt, to drink the waters of Sihor? or what hast thou to do in the way of Assyria, to drink the waters of the river?H1870H4714H8354H4325H7883H1870H804H8354H4325H5104 19Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.H7451H3256H4878H3198H3045H7200H7451H4751H5800H3068H430H6345H5002H136H3069H6635 20For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands; and thou saidst, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree thou wanderest, playing the harlot.H5769H7665H5923H5423H4147H559H5674H5647H1364H1389H7488H6086H6808H2181 21Yet I had planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then art thou turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto me?H5193H8321H571H2233H2015H5494H5237H1612 22For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before me, saith the Lord GOD.H3526H5427H7235H1287H5771H3799H6440H5002H136H3069 23How canst thou say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim? see thy way in the valley, know what thou hast done: thou art a swift dromedary traversing her ways;H559H2930H1980H310H1168H7200H1870H1516H3045H6213H7031H1072H8308H1870 24A wild ass used to the wilderness, that snuffeth up the wind at her pleasure; in her occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her will not weary themselves; in her month they shall find her.H6501H3928H4057H7602H7307H185H5315H8385H7725H1245H3286H2320H4672 25Withhold thy foot from being unshod, and thy throat from thirst: but thou saidst, There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go.H4513H7272H3182H1627H6773H559H2976H157H2114H310H3212 26As the thief is ashamed when he is found, so is the house of Israel ashamed; they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets.H1590H1322H4672H1004H3478H3001H4428H8269H3548H5030 27Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.H559H6086H1H68H3205H6437H6203H6440H6256H7451H559H6965H3467 28But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah.H430H6213H6965H3467H6256H7451H4557H5892H430H3063 29Wherefore will ye plead with me? ye all have transgressed against me, saith the LORD.H7378H6586H5002H3068 30In vain have I smitten your children; they received no correction: your own sword hath devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion.H7723H5221H1121H3947H4148H2719H398H5030H7843H738 31O generation, see ye the word of the LORD. Have I been a wilderness unto Israel? a land of darkness? wherefore say my people, We are lords; we will come no more unto thee?H1755H7200H1697H3068H4057H3478H776H3991H559H5971H7300H935 32Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.H1330H7911H5716H3618H7196H5971H7911H3117H4557 33Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou also taught the wicked ones thy ways.H3190H1870H1245H160H3925H7451H1870 34Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.H3671H4672H1818H5315H34H5355H4672H4290 35Yet thou sayest, Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall turn from me. Behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I have not sinned.H559H5352H639H7725H8199H559H2398 36Why gaddest thou about so much to change thy way? thou also shalt be ashamed of Egypt, as thou wast ashamed of Assyria.H235H3966H8138H1870H954H4714H954H804 37Yea, thou shalt go forth from him, and thine hands upon thine head: for the LORD hath rejected thy confidences, and thou shalt not prosper in them.H3318H3027H7218H3068H3988H4009H6743
