Can a person from ·Cush [Ethiopia] change ·his skin [L its color]? Can a leopard change his spots? In the same way, you [C Jerusalem] cannot change and do good, because you are accustomed to doing evil.
And still, you will not change. Can the Ethiopian change his skin? Can a leopard change its spots? It seems just as unlikely that you will change your ways and do good, when you are so used to doing evil—it has become such a part of you.
If a man of Ethiopia may change his skin (colour), either a leopard may change his diversities, and ye may do well, when ye have learned evil. (Only if a man of Ethiopia can change his skin colour, or if a leopard can change his spots, then can ye still do good, after all the evil that ye have learned.)
