Jeremiah 2:18-19

18-19"And now, what do you think you'll get by going off to Egypt?

Maybe a cool drink of Nile River water?

Or what do you think you'll get by going off to Assyria?

Maybe a long drink of Euphrates River water?

Your evil ways will get you a sound thrashing, that's what you'll get.

You'll pay dearly for your disloyal ways.

Take a long, hard look at what you've done and its bitter results.

Was it worth it to have walked out on your God?"

God's Decree, Master God-of-the-Angel-Armies.

Addicted to Alien Gods

20-22"A long time ago you broke out of the harness.

You shook off all restraints.

You said, 'I will not serve!'

and off you went,

Visiting every sex-and-religion shrine on the way,

like a common whore.

You were a select vine when I planted you

from completely reliable stock.

And look how you've turned out—

a tangle of rancid growth, a poor excuse for a vine.

Scrub, using the strongest soaps.

Scour your skin raw.

The sin-grease won't come out. I can't stand to even look at you!"

God's Decree, the Master's Decree.
