Jeremiah 3:4
Wilt thou not from this time cry unto Me, ‘My Father, Thou art the guide of my youth?
Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My Father, thou art the guide of my youth?
“Will you not just now call out to Me, ‘My Father, you were the guide and companion of my youth?
Have you not just now cried to Me: My Father, You were the guide and companion of my youth?
Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth?
At the same time you say to me, “My father, my friend since youth,
Didn’t you just now cry to me, ‘My father, you are my friend from my youth’? —
You call me your father or your long-lost friend;
Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth?
Therefore at least at this time call to me: Thou art my father, the guide of my virginity:
But didn’t you just call me ‘Father’? Didn’t you say, ‘You have been my friend since I was a child’?
Have you not just now called to me, ‘My father, you are the friend of my youth—
Have you not just now called to me, ‘My father, you are the friend of my youth—
·Now you are [L Are you not now…?] calling to me, ‘My father, you have been my friend since I was young.
Didst thou not still cry unto me, Thou art my father, and the guide of my youth?
But now you are calling to me. You say, ‘Father! You have been my companion ever since I was young.
“And now you say to me, ‘You are my father, and you have loved me ever since I was a child.
Have you not lately called to Me, “My Father. You were my friend in my youth.
But now you are calling to me. You say, ‘My father, you have been my friend since I was young.
Have you not just called out to me, ‘My father, you are the friend of my youth—
Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth?
Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth?
Wilt thou not from this time cry unto me, My father, thou art the guide of my youth?
Have you not just now called to me, ‘My father, you are the close friend of my youth?
And yet you say to me, “O Father, you have always been my Friend; surely you won’t be angry about such a little thing! Surely you will just forget it?” So you talk and keep right on doing all the evil that you can.
“Look around at the hills. Where have you not had sex? You’ve camped out like hunters stalking deer. You’ve solicited many lover-gods, Like a streetwalking whore chasing after other gods. And so the rain has stopped. No more rain from the skies! But it doesn’t even faze you. Brazen as whores, you carry on as if you’ve done nothing wrong. Then you have the nerve to call out, ‘My father! You took care of me when I was a child. Why not now? Are you going to keep up your anger nonstop?’ That’s your line. Meanwhile you keep sinning nonstop.”
Shall you not from this time cry to Me, “My Father, You are the guide of my youth?
But now you are calling to me. You say, ‘Ab! You have been my companion ever since I was young.
Even now do you not call me, “My father, you are the bridegroom of my youth?
“Have you not just now called to Me, ‘My Father, You are the friend of my youth?
Now you are calling to me, ‘My father, you have been my friend since I was young.
Even now you say to me, ‘You are my father! You have been my faithful companion ever since I was young.
You have just now called out to me. You said, ‘My Father, you have been my friend ever since I was young.
Have you not just called to me: ‘My Father, my friend from my youth,
Have you not just called to me: “My Father, my friend from my youth,
Will you not from this time cry to Me, ‘My Father, You are the guide of my youth?
Have you not just now called to Me? You said, ‘My Father, You have been my friend since I was young.
Yet you say to me, ‘Father, you have been my guide since my youth.
Have you not just now called to me, “My Father, you are the friend of my youth—
Have you not just now called to me, ‘My Father, you are the friend of my youth—
Have you not just now called to me, ‘My Father, you are the friend of my youth—
Have you not just now called to me, “My Father, you are the friend of my youth—
Wilt thou not from this time cry unto Me, Avi, Thou art the Alluf (Guide, Friend) of my neurim (youth)?
Have you not just now called to me, ‘My father, thou art the friend of my youth—
Have you not just now called to me, ‘My father, thou art the friend of my youth—
Did you not just now call to Me: ‘Avi! You are a friend of my youth.
But wait, did you just now call out to Me, saying, “My Father, You have been my friend, my confidant since I was young”?
Will you not from this time cry to me, ‘My Father, you are the guide of my youth?’
Namely from this time forth call thou me, Thou art my father, the leader of my virginity. (Yet now thou sayest to me, Thou art my father, my guide in my younger years.)
Hast thou not henceforth called to Me, `My father, Thou [art] the leader of my youth?
