Jeremiah 5:7-9 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

“How can I pardon you?
    Your children have forsaken me,
    and have sworn by those who are no gods.
When I fed them to the full,
    they committed adultery
    and trooped to the houses of harlots.
They were well-fed lusty stallions,
    each neighing for his neighbor’s wife.
Shall I not punish them for these things?
                says the Lord;
    and shall I not avenge myself
    on a nation such as this?
