How skilled you are at pursuing2 love! Even the worst of women can learn from your ways.
On your clothes men find the lifeblood3 of the innocent poor, though you did not catch them breaking in.4 Yet in spite of all this
you say, 'I am innocent;5 he is not angry with me.' But I will pass judgment6 on you because you say, 'I have not sinned.'736
Why do you go about so much, changing8 your ways? You will be disappointed by Egypt9 as you were by Assyria.
You will also leave that place with your hands on your head,10 for the LORD has rejected those you trust; you will not be helped11 by them.
