Jeremiah 13: 20-27


20 Lift up your eyes and see
   those who come from the north.
Where is the flock that was given you,
   your beautiful flock?
21 What will you say when they set as head over you
   those whom you have trained
   to be your allies?
Will not pangs take hold of you,
   like those of a woman in labour?
22 And if you say in your heart,
   ‘Why have these things come upon me?’
it is for the greatness of your iniquity
   that your skirts are lifted up,
   and you are violated.
23 Can Ethiopians* change their skin
   or leopards their spots?
Then also you can do good
   who are accustomed to do evil.
24 I will scatter you* like chaff
   driven by the wind from the desert.
25 This is your lot,
   the portion I have measured out to you, says the Lord,
because you have forgotten me
   and trusted in lies.
26 I myself will lift up your skirts over your face,
   and your shame will be seen.
27 I have seen your abominations,
   your adulteries and neighings, your shameless prostitutions
   on the hills of the countryside.
Woe to you, O Jerusalem!
   How long will it be
   before you are made clean?
