Jeremiah 5:1-6 DBY

1 Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broadways thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be [any] that doeth justice, that seeketh fidelity; and I will pardon it.
2 And if they say, [As] Jehovah liveth! surely they swear falsely.
3 Jehovah, are not thine eyes upon fidelity? Thou hast smitten them, but they are not sore; a thou hast consumed them, they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.
