I thought that after she had done all this she would return to me but she did not, and her unfaithful sister1 Judah saw it.28
I gave faithless Israel3 her certificate of divorce4 and sent her away because of all her adulteries. Yet I saw that her unfaithful sister Judah had no fear;5 she also went out and committed adultery.
Because Israel's immorality mattered so little to her, she defiled the land6 and committed adultery7 with stone8 and wood.910
In spite of all this, her unfaithful sister Judah did not return10 to me with all her heart, but only in pretense,11" declares the LORD.12
