Jeremiah 2:1-5New International Reader's Version (NIRV)
Israel Deserts the Lord
2 A message from the Lord came to me. The Lord said, 2 “Go. Announce my message to the people in Jerusalem. I want everyone to hear it. Tell them,
“Here is what the Lord says.
“ ‘I remember how faithful you were to me when you were young. You loved me as if you were my bride. You followed me through the desert. Nothing had been planted there. 3 Your people were holy to me.

4 People of Jacob, hear the Lord’s message. Listen, all you tribes of Israel.
