Jeremiah 2:20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

20 Long ago you broke your yoke,
    you tore off your bonds.
    You said, “I will not serve.”
On every high hill, under every green tree,
    you sprawled and served as a prostitute.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 2:20 Served as a prostitute: idolatry (because Israel is the “bride” of God); cf. vv. 2–3.
