Jeremiah 8:4 - 8:7

4 “You shall say to them, ‘Thus says Yahweh,
“Do men fall and not get up again?
Does one turn away and not turn back?
Why then has this people, Jerusalem,
Turned away in continual faithlessness?
They hold fast to deceit;
They refuse to return.
I have given heed and heard,
They have spoken what is not right;
No man regretted his evil,
Saying, ‘What have I done?’
Everyone turned to his course,
Like a horse charging into the battle.
Even the stork in the sky
Knows her seasons;
And the turtledove and the swift and the crane
Keep the time of their migration;
But My people do not know
The legal judgment of Yahweh.
