26 “As the thief is ashamed when he is found out,
So is the house of Israel ashamed;
They and their kings and their princes, and their priests and their (A)prophets,
27 Saying to a tree, ‘You are my father,’
And to a (B)stone, ‘You gave birth to me.’
For they have turned their back to Me, and not their face.
But in the time of their (C)trouble
They will say, ‘Arise and save us.’
28 But (D)where are your gods that you have made for yourselves?
Let them arise,
If they (E)can save you in the time of your [a]trouble;
For (F)according to the number of your cities
Are your gods, O Judah.
