Jeremiah 2:18-20 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

18     You won’t gain anything by going to Egypt
        to drink water from the Nile River.
    You won’t gain anything by going to Assyria
        to drink water from the Euphrates River.
19     Your own wickedness will correct you,
        and your unfaithful ways will punish you.
    You should know and see how evil and bitter it is for you
        if you abandon the Lord your God and do not fear me,”
            declares the Almighty Lord of Armies.

20 “Long ago you broke off your yoke,[a] tore off your chains,
    and said that you wouldn’t be a slave.
You lay down and acted like a prostitute
    on every high hill and under every large tree.


  1. Jeremiah 2:20 A yoke is a wooden bar placed over the necks of work animals so that they can pull plows or carts.
