Jeremiah 2:29-30

Trying Out Another Sin-Project

29-30"What do you have against me,

running off to assert your 'independence'?"

God's Decree.

"I've wasted my time trying to train your children.

They've paid no attention to me, ignored my discipline.

And you've gotten rid of your God-messengers,

treating them like dirt and sweeping them away.

31-32"What a generation you turned out to be!

Didn't I tell you? Didn't I warn you?

Have I let you down, Israel?

Am I nothing but a dead-end street?

Why do my people say, 'Good riddance!

From now on we're on our own'?

Young women don't forget their jewelry, do they?

Brides don't show up without their veils, do they?

But my people forget me.

Day after day after day they never give me a thought.
