Say to your brother, Ammi, and to your sister, Ruhamah.
Plead with your mother, plead— for she is not my wife, and I am not her husband— that she put away her whoring from her face, and her adultery from between her breasts,
or I will strip her naked and expose her as in the day she was born, and make her like a wilderness, and turn her into a parched land, and kill her with thirst.
Upon her children also I will have no pity, because they are children of whoredom.
For their mother has played the whore; she who conceived them has acted shamefully. For she said, "I will go after my lovers; they give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, my oil and my drink."
Therefore I will hedge up her way with thorns; and I will build a wall against her, so that she cannot find her paths.
