They will burn down1 your houses and inflict punishment on you in the sight of many women.2 I will put a stop3 to your prostitution, and you will no longer pay your lovers.
Then my wrath against you will subside and my jealous anger will turn away from you; I will be calm and no longer angry.443
" 'Because you did not remember5 the days of your youth but enraged me with all these things, I will surely bring down6 on your head what you have done, declares the Sovereign LORD. Did you not add lewdness to all your other detestable practices?744
" 'Everyone who quotes proverbs8 will quote this proverb about you: "Like mother, like daughter."
You are a true daughter of your mother, who despised9 her husband10 and her children; and you are a true sister of your sisters, who despised their husbands and their children. Your mother was a Hittite and your father an Amorite.1146
Your older sister12 was Samaria, who lived to the north of you with her daughters; and your younger sister, who lived to the south of you with her daughters, was Sodom.1347
You not only walked in their ways and copied their detestable practices, but in all your ways you soon became more depraved than they.1448
As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign15 LORD, your sister Sodom16 and her daughters never did what you and your daughters have done.1749
" 'Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom:18 She and her daughters were arrogant,19 overfed and unconcerned;20 they did not help the poor and needy.2150
They were haughty22 and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.2351
Samaria did not commit half the sins you did. You have done more detestable things than they, and have made your sisters seem righteous by all these things you have done.24
