"Judah's sin is engraved with an iron tool,1 inscribed with a flint point, on the tablets of their hearts2 and on the horns3 of their altars.
Even their children remember their altars and Asherah polesa4 beside the spreading trees and on the high hills.53
My mountain in the land and yourb wealth and all your treasures I will give away as plunder,6 together with your high places,7 because of sin throughout your country.84
Through your own fault you will lose the inheritance9 I gave you. I will enslave you to your enemies10 in a land11 you do not know, for you have kindled my anger, and it will burn12 forever."
