Therefore, I will line her path with thorns; and I will build a wall against her, so that she can't find her paths.
She will go after her lovers, but she won't catch up with them; she will seek them, but she won't find them. Then she will say, "I will return to my first husband, for I had it better then than now."
She didn't know that I gave her the corn, the new wine, and the fresh oil, and that I gave her much silver, and gold that they used for Baal.
So now I will take back my corn in its time, and my wine in its season; and I will take away my wool and my linen cloth, which were to cover her nakedness.
Now I will uncover her nakedness in plain view of her lovers, and no one will rescue her from me.
I will end all her religious celebrations, her festivals, her new moons, her Sabbath days, and all her sacred seasons.
I will destroy her vines and her fig trees, of which she said, "These are my pay, which my lovers have given to me." I will change them into a forest, and the wild animals will eat them.
I will punish her for the days dedicated to the Baals, when she offered sweet-smelling sacrifices to them and dressed herself up with rings and jewelry, and went after her lovers, and forgot me, says the LORD.
