King James Version

Israel Is Shameless

3They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man's, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the LORD.H559H376H7971H802H1980H312H376H7725H776H2610H2610H2181H7227H7453H7725H5002H3068 2Lift up thine eyes unto the high places, and see where thou hast not been lien with. In the ways hast thou sat for them, as the Arabian in the wilderness; and thou hast polluted the land with thy whoredoms and with thy wickedness.H5375H5869H8205H7200H375H7693H7901H1870H3427H6163H4057H2610H776H2184H7451 3Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore's forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed.H7241H4513H4456H2181H802H4696H3985H3637 4Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth?H7121H1H441H5271 5Will he reserve his anger for ever? will he keep it to the end? Behold, thou hast spoken and done evil things as thou couldest.H5201H5769H8104H5331H1696H6213H7451H3201

A Call to Repentance

6The LORD said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.H3068H559H3117H2977H4428H7200H4878H3478H6213H1980H1364H2022H8478H7488H6086H2181 7And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it.H559H310H6213H7725H7725H901H269H3063H7200 8And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.H7200H182H4878H3478H5003H7971H5414H5612H3748H898H269H3063H3372H3212H2181 9And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.H6963H2184H2610H776H5003H68H6086 10And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD.H901H269H3063H7725H3820H8267H5002H3068 11And the LORD said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.H3068H559H4878H3478H6663H5315H898H3063 12Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for ever.H1980H7121H1697H6828H559H7725H4878H3478H5002H3068H6440H5307H2623H5002H3068H5201H5769 13Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the LORD.H3045H5771H6586H3068H430H6340H1870H2114H7488H6086H8085H6963H5002H3068 14Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:H7725H7726H1121H5002H3068H1166H3947H259H5892H8147H4940H935H6726 15And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.H5414H7462H3820H7462H1844H7919 16And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.H7235H6509H776H3117H5002H3068H559H727H1285H3068H5927H3820H2142H6485H6213 17At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.H6256H7121H3389H3678H3068H1471H6960H8034H3068H3389H3212H310H8307H7451H3820 18In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.H3117H1004H3063H3212H1004H3478H935H3162H776H6828H776H5157H1 19But I said, How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations? and I said, Thou shalt call me, My father; and shalt not turn away from me.H559H7896H1121H5414H2532H776H6643H5159H6635H1471H559H7121H1H7725H310 20Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, saith the LORD.H403H802H898H7453H898H1004H3478H5002H3068 21A voice was heard upon the high places, weeping and supplications of the children of Israel: for they have perverted their way, and they have forgotten the LORD their God.H6963H8085H8205H1065H8469H1121H3478H5753H1870H7911H3068H430 22Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee; for thou art the LORD our God.H7725H7726H1121H7495H4878H857H3068H430 23Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains: truly in the LORD our God is the salvation of Israel.H403H8267H1389H1995H2022H403H3068H430H8668H3478 24For shame hath devoured the labour of our fathers from our youth; their flocks and their herds, their sons and their daughters.H1322H398H3018H1H5271H6629H1241H1121H1323 25We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against the LORD our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God.H7901H1322H3639H3680H2398H3068H430H1H5271H3117H8085H6963H3068H430
