The Polluted Land
God says, “If a husband divorces his wife
And she goes from him
And belongs to another man,
Will he still return to her?
Will not that land be completely polluted?
But you are a harlot with many lovers;
Yet you turn to Me,” declares Yahweh. 2
“Lift up your eyes to the bare heights and see;
Where have you not been ravished?
By the roads you have sat for them
Like an Arab in the wilderness,
And you have polluted a land
With your harlotry and with your evil. 3
Therefore the showers have been withheld,
And the late rain has not come.
Yet you had a harlot’s forehead;
You refused to feel dishonor. 4
Have you not just now called to Me,
‘My Father, You are the close companion of my youth? 5
Will He be angry forever?
Will He keep it to the end?’
Behold, you have spoken
And have done evil things,
And you have had your way.”
