The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from King James Bible:|
wilderness unto Israel? a land of darkness? wherefore say my people, We
are lords; we will come no more unto thee?
JER 2:32 Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my
people have forgotten me days without number.
JER 2:33 Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou
also taught the wicked ones thy ways.
JER 2:34 Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor
innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.
JER 2:35 Yet thou sayest, Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall
turn from me. Behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I
have not sinned.
