A Rebellious Nation

2 Hear, O heavens! Listen, O earth!1 For the LORD has spoken:2 "I reared children3 and brought them up, but they have rebelled4 against me. 3 The ox knows5 his master, the donkey his owner's manger,6 but Israel does not know,7 my people do not understand.8" 4 Ah, sinful nation, a people loaded with guilt,9 a brood of evildoers,10 children given to corruption!11 They have forsaken12 the LORD; they have spurned the Holy One13 of Israel and turned their backs14 on him. 5 Why should you be beaten15 anymore? Why do you persist16 in rebellion?17 Your whole head is injured, your whole heart18 afflicted.19 6 From the sole of your foot to the top of your head20 there is no soundness21-- only wounds and welts22 and open sores, not cleansed or bandaged23 or soothed with oil.24 7 Your country is desolate,25 your cities burned with fire;26 your fields are being stripped by foreigners27 right before you, laid waste as when overthrown by strangers.28
