Jeremiah 3:19-20

19-20"I planned what I'd say if you returned to me:

'Good! I'll bring you back into the family.

I'll give you choice land,

land that the godless nations would die for.'

And I imagined that you would say, 'Dear father!'

and would never again go off and leave me.

But no luck. Like a false-hearted woman walking out on her husband,

you, the whole family of Israel, have proven false to me."

God's Decree.

21-22The sound of voices comes drifting out of the hills,

the unhappy sound of Israel's crying,

Israel lamenting the wasted years,

never once giving her God a thought.

"Come back, wandering children!

I can heal your wanderlust!"
