New International Version
7 “Why should I forgive you?
Your children have forsaken me
and sworn(A) by gods that are not gods.(B)
I supplied all their needs,
yet they committed adultery(C)
and thronged to the houses of prostitutes.(D)
8 They are well-fed, lusty stallions,
each neighing for another man’s wife.(E)
9 Should I not punish them for this?”(F)
declares the Lord.
“Should I not avenge(G) myself
on such a nation as this?
