Jeremiah 2:30-32 World English Bible (WEB)

30 “I have struck your children in vain.
    They received no correction.
Your own sword has devoured your prophets,
    like a destroying lion.
31 Generation, consider Yahweh’s word.
    Have I been a wilderness to Israel?
    Or a land of thick darkness?
Why do my people say, ‘We have broken loose.
    We will come to you no more?’
32 “Can a virgin forget her ornaments,
    or a bride her attire?
    Yet my people have forgotten me for days without number.

Jeremiah 2:30-32 New International Version (NIV)

30 “In vain I punished your people;
    they did not respond to correction.
Your sword has devoured your prophets
    like a ravenous lion.

31 “You of this generation, consider the word of the Lord:

“Have I been a desert to Israel
    or a land of great darkness?
Why do my people say, ‘We are free to roam;
    we will come to you no more’?
32 Does a young woman forget her jewelry,
    a bride her wedding ornaments?
Yet my people have forgotten me,
    days without number.
