Jeremiah 2:33-35

33-35"What an impressive start you made

to get the most out of life.

You founded schools of sin,

taught graduate courses in evil!

And now you're sending out graduates, resplendent in cap and gown—

except the gowns are stained with the blood of your victims!

All that blood convicts you.

You cut and hurt a lot of people to get where you are.

And yet you have the gall to say, 'I've done nothing wrong.

God doesn't mind. He hasn't punished me, has he?'

Don't look now, but judgment's on the way,

aimed at you who say, 'I've done nothing wrong.'

36-37"You think it's just a small thing, don't you,

to try out another sin-project when the first one fails?

But Egypt will leave you in the lurch

the same way that Assyria did.

You're going to walk away from there

wringing your hands.

I, God, have blacklisted those you trusted.

You'll get not a lick of help from them."
