Bible: Jer 3:1-3

3:1If a man divorces his wife

and she leaves him and becomes another man’s wife,

he may not take her back again. 1 

Doing that would utterly defile the land. 2 

But you, Israel, have given yourself as a prostitute to many gods. 3 

So what makes you think you can return to me?” 4 

says the Lord.

3:2Look up at the hilltops and consider this. 5 

You have had sex with other gods on every one of them. 6 

You waited for those gods like a thief lying in wait in the desert. 7 

You defiled the land by your wicked prostitution to other gods. 8 

3:3 That is why the rains have been withheld,

and the spring rains have not come.

Yet in spite of this you are obstinate as a prostitute. 9 

You refuse to be ashamed of what you have done.
