Bible: Jer 2:27, 28; 11:12; 15:11
2:27 They say to a wooden idol, 1 ‘You are my father.’
They say to a stone image, ‘You gave birth to me.’ 2
Yes, they have turned away from me instead of turning to me. 3
Yet when they are in trouble, they say, ‘Come and save us!’
2:28 But where are the gods you made for yourselves?
Let them save you when you are in trouble.
The sad fact is that 4 you have as many gods
as you have towns, Judah.
11:12 When Arphaxad had lived 35 years, he became the father of Shelah.
