So a lion from the forest will attack them.
    A wolf from the desert will destroy them.
A leopard will hide and wait near their towns.
    It will tear to pieces anyone who dares to go out.
Again and again they have refused to obey the Lord.
    They have turned away from him many times.

The Lord says, “Jerusalem, why should I forgive you?
    Your people have deserted me.
They have made their promises in the names of gods
    that are not really gods at all.
I supplied everything they needed.
    But they committed adultery.
    Large crowds went to the houses of prostitutes.
Your people are like stallions that have plenty to eat.
    Their sinful desires are out of control.
    Each of them goes after another man’s wife.
