18 And what hast thou now to do in the way of [a]Egypt? to drink the water of Nilus? or what makest thou in the way of Assyria? to drink the water of the [b]River?
19 Thine own wickedness shall [c]correct thee, and thy turnings back shall reprove thee: know therefore and behold, that it is an evil thing, and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord God of hosts.
20 For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bonds, and thou saidest, [d]I will no more transgress, but like an harlot thou runnest about upon all high hills, and under all green trees.
Jeremiah 2:18To seek help of man, as though God were not able enough to defend thee, which is to drink of the puddles, and to leave the fountain, read Isa. 31:1.
