Jeremiah 3:7-9 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

And I said, when she had done all this, Turn thou unto me: but she returned not, as her rebellious sister Judah saw.

When I saw, how that by all occasions rebellious Israel had played the harlot, I cast [a]her away, and gave her a bill of divorcement: yet her rebellious sister Judah was not afraid, but she went also and played the harlot.

So that for the [b]lightness of her whoredom she hath even defiled the land: for she hath committed fornication with stones and stocks.


  1. Jeremiah 3:8 And gave her into the hands of the Assyrians.
  2. Jeremiah 3:9 The Hebrew word may either signify lightness, and wantonness, or noise and brute.

Jeremiah 3:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

I thought that after she had done all this she would return to me but she did not, and her unfaithful sister Judah saw it. I gave faithless Israel her certificate of divorce and sent her away because of all her adulteries. Yet I saw that her unfaithful sister Judah had no fear; she also went out and committed adultery. Because Israel’s immorality mattered so little to her, she defiled the land and committed adultery with stone and wood.
