New International Version
8 I gave faithless Israel(A) her certificate of divorce(B) and sent her away because of all her adulteries. Yet I saw that her unfaithful sister Judah had no fear;(C) she also went out and committed adultery. 9 Because Israel’s immorality mattered so little to her, she defiled the land(D) and committed adultery(E) with stone(F) and wood.(G) 10 In spite of all this, her unfaithful sister Judah did not return(H) to me with all her heart, but only in pretense,(I)” declares the Lord.(J)
“‘Return,(O) faithless(P) Israel,’ declares the Lord,
‘I will frown on you no longer,
for I am faithful,’(Q) declares the Lord,
‘I will not be angry(R) forever.
13 Only acknowledge(S) your guilt—
you have rebelled against the Lord your God,
you have scattered your favors to foreign gods(T)
under every spreading tree,(U)
and have not obeyed(V) me,’”
declares the Lord.
