Jeremiah 5:7-9

7-9"Why should I even bother with you any longer?

Your children wander off, leaving me,

Taking up with gods

that aren't even gods.

I satisfied their deepest needs, and then they went off with the 'sacred' whores,

left me for orgies in sex shrines!

A bunch of well-groomed, lusty stallions,

each one pawing and snorting for his neighbor's wife.

Do you think I'm going to stand around and do nothing?"

God's Decree.

"Don't you think I'll take serious measures

against a people like this?

Eyes That Don't Really Look,

Ears That Don't Really Listen

10-11"Go down the rows of vineyards and rip out the vines,

but not all of them. Leave a few.

Prune back those vines!

That growth didn't come from God!

They've betrayed me over and over again,

Judah and Israel both."

God's Decree.
