Serving God, Changing Lives

Jeremiah 13:20-27

20Lift up your eyes and see
those who come from the north.
Where is the flock that was given you,
your beautiful flock?
21What will you say when they set as head over you
those whom you have trained
to be your allies?
Will not pangs take hold of you,
like those of a woman in labor?
22And if you say in your heart,
“Why have these things come upon me?”
it is for the greatness of your iniquity
that your skirts are lifted up,
and you are violated.
23Can Ethiopians change their skin
or leopards their spots?
Then also you can do good
who are accustomed to do evil.
24I will scatter you like chaff
driven by the wind from the desert.
25This is your lot,
the portion I have measured out to you, says the LORD,
because you have forgotten me
and trusted in lies.
26I myself will lift up your skirts over your face,
and your shame will be seen.
27I have seen your abominations,
your adulteries and neighings, your shameless prostitutions
on the hills of the countryside.
Woe to you, O Jerusalem!
How long will it be
before you are made clean?
