Jeremiah 2:26-29 World English Bible (WEB)
26 As the thief is ashamed when he is found,
so is the house of Israel ashamed;
they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets;
27 who tell wood, ‘You are my father;’
and a stone, ‘You have given birth to me:’
for they have turned their back to me,
and not their face;
but in the time of their trouble they will say, ‘Arise, and save us.’
28 “But where are your gods that you have made for yourselves?
Let them arise, if they can save you in the time of your trouble:
for you have as many gods as you have towns, O Judah.
29 “Why will you contend with me?
You all have transgressed against me,” says Yahweh.
Jeremiah 2:26-29 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
26 “As the thief is shamed when he is discovered,
So the house of Israel is shamed;
They, their kings, their princes
And their priests and their prophets,
27 Who say to a tree, ‘You are my father,’
And to a stone, ‘You gave me birth.’
For they have turned their back to Me,
And not their face;
But in the time of their trouble they will say,
‘Arise and save us.’
28 “But where are your gods
Which you made for yourself?
Let them arise, if they can save you
In the time of your trouble;
For according to the number of your cities
Are your gods, O Judah.
29 “Why do you contend with Me?
You have all transgressed against Me,” declares the Lord.
