Jeremiah 2:1-6 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 The LORD gave me another message. He said, 2 "Go and shout in Jerusalem's streets: 'This is what the LORD says: I remember how eager you were to please me as a young bride long ago, how you loved me and followed me even through the barren wilderness. 3 In those days Israel was holy to the LORD, the first of my children. a All who harmed my people were considered guilty, and disaster fell upon them. I, the LORD, have spoken!'" 4 Listen to the word of the LORD, people of Jacob -- all you families of Israel! 5 This is what the LORD says: "What sin did your ancestors find in me that led them to stray so far? They worshiped foolish idols, only to become foolish themselves. 6 They did not ask, 'Where is the LORD who brought us safely out of Egypt and led us through the barren wilderness -- a land of deserts and pits, of drought and death, where no one lives or even travels?'"
