Jeremiah 2:18-20 The Voice (VOICE)

18 Eternal One: What do you hope to accomplish by going to Egypt
        and drinking from the waters of the Nile?
    What do you think you will gain by traveling to Assyria
        and drinking from the waters of the Euphrates?
19     It is your wickedness that will punish you
        and your desertion of My ways that will convict you.
    See the evil and taste the bitterness of forsaking the one True God, the Eternal.
        At the core of this evil is the sad truth that you have forgotten the wonder and terror of who I am.

So says the Eternal Lord, Commander of heavenly armies.

20 Eternal One (to His people): A long time ago, I broke the yoke that weighed you down
        and tore off the chains that enslaved you;
    Still you boldly said, “I will not serve You!”
        Instead, you bowed down like a whore to pagan gods on the high hills, under every green tree.
