Bible: Jer 2:30-31

2:30It did no good for me to punish your people.

They did not respond to such correction.

You slaughtered your prophets

like a voracious lion.” 1 

2:31 You people of this generation,

listen to what the Lord says.

“Have I been like a wilderness to you, Israel?

Have I been like a dark and dangerous land to you? 2 

Why then do you 3  say, ‘We are free to wander. 4 

We will not come to you any more?’
