The Deceitful Heart

1 The 1sin of Judah is written down with an 2iron stylus; With a diamond point it is 3engraved upon the tablet of their heart And on the horns of atheir altars, 2 As they remember their 4children, So they remember their altars and their b5Asherim By 6green trees on the high hills. 3 O 7mountain of Mine in the countryside, I will 8give over your wealth and all your treasures for booty, Your high places for sin throughout your borders. 4 And you will, even of yourself, 9let go of your inheritance That I gave you; And I will make you serve your 10enemies In the 11land which you do not know; For you have 12kindled a fire in My anger Which will burn forever . 5 Thus says the LORD, "13Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes 14flesh his cstrength, And whose heart turns away from the LORD. 6 "For he will be like a 15bush in the desert And will not see when prosperity comes, But will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, A 16land of salt dwithout inhabitant.
