3:6 When Josiah was king of Judah, the Lord said to me, “Jeremiah, you have no doubt seen what wayward Israel has done. 1 You have seen how she went up to every high hill and under every green tree to give herself like a prostitute to other gods. 2 3:7 Yet even after she had done all that, I thought that she might come back to me. 3 But she did not. Her sister, unfaithful Judah, saw what she did. 4 3:8 She also saw 5 that I gave wayward Israel her divorce papers and sent her away because of her adulterous worship of other gods. 6 Even after her unfaithful sister Judah had seen this, 7 she still was not afraid, and she too went and gave herself like a prostitute to other gods. 8 3:9 Because she took her prostitution so lightly, she defiled the land 9 through her adulterous worship of gods made of wood and stone. 10 3:10 In spite of all this, 11 Israel’s sister, unfaithful Judah, has not turned back to me with any sincerity; she has only pretended to do so,” 12 says the Lord.
