Bible: Jer 5:7-9

5:7 The Lord asked, 1 

“How can I leave you unpunished, Jerusalem? 2 

Your people 3  have rejected me

and have worshiped gods that are not gods at all. 4 

Even though I supplied all their needs, 5  they were like an unfaithful wife to me. 6 

They went flocking 7  to the houses of prostitutes. 8 

5:8 They are like lusty, well-fed 9  stallions.

Each of them lusts after 10  his neighbor’s wife.

5:9 I will surely punish them for doing such things!” says the Lord.

“I will surely bring retribution on such a nation as this! 11
