Bible: Jeremiah 2:14-15

Israel’s Reliance on Foreign Alliances (not on God)

2:14Israel 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
