Jeremiah 13:22 - 13:27

If you say in your heart,
‘Why have these things happened to me?’
Because of the magnitude of your iniquity
Your skirts have been uncovered
And your heels have suffered violence.
Can the Ethiopian change his skin
Or the leopard his spots?
Then you also can do good
Who are accustomed to doing evil.
Therefore I will scatter them like chaff passing away
Into the wilderness wind.
This is your lot, the portion measured to you
From Me,” declares Yahweh,
“Because you have forgotten Me
And trusted in lies.
So I Myself have also stripped your skirts off over your face,
That your disgrace may be seen.
As for your adulteries and your lustful neighings,
The lewdness of your prostitution
On the hills in the field,
I have seen your detestable things.
Woe to you, O Jerusalem!
How long will you not cleanse yourself?”
