The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron, and with the pointa of a diamond: it is graven upon the table of their heart, and upon the horns of your altars;2
Whilst their childrenremember their altars and their groves by the greentrees upon the highhills.3
O my mountain in the field, I will give thy substance and all thy treasures to the spoil, and thy high places for sin, throughout all thy borders.4
And thou, even thyself, shalt discontinueb from thine heritage that I gave thee; and I will cause thee to serve thine enemies in the land which thou knowest not: for ye have kindled a fire in mine anger, which shall burnforever.5
Thus saith the LORD;Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and makethflesh his arm, and whose heartdeparteth from the LORD.6
For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when goodcometh ; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a saltland and not inhabited .
