Bible: Jeremiah 2:14-15
Israel’s Reliance on Foreign Alliances (not on God)
2:14 “Israel is not a slave, is he?
He was not born into slavery, was he? 1
If not, why then is he being carried off?
2:15 Like lions his enemies roar victoriously over him;
they raise their voices in triumph. 2
They have laid his land waste;
his cities have been burned down and deserted. 3
