“Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them.
Read Jonah 2:8 Using Other Translations
They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love.
Those who worship false gods turn their backs on all God’s mercies.
