Bible: Jer 3:12-14

The Lord Calls on Israel and Judah to Repent

3:12Go and shout this message to my people in the countries in the north. 1  Tell them,

‘Come back to me, wayward Israel,’ says the Lord.

‘I will not continue to look on you with displeasure. 2 

For I am merciful,’ says the Lord.

‘I will not be angry with you forever.

3:13 However, you must confess that you have done wrong, 3 

and that you have rebelled against the Lord your God.

You must confess 4  that you have given yourself to 5  foreign gods under every green tree,

and have not obeyed my commands,’ says the Lord.

3:14Come back to me, my wayward sons,” says the Lord, “for I am your true master. 6  If you do, 7  I will take one of you from each town and two of you from each family group, and I will bring you back to Zion.
