Context
The Results of Israel's Sin

14Is Israel a servant? is he a home born slave? why is he spoiled? 15The young lions roared on him, and yelled, and they made his land waste: his cities are burned without inhabitant. 16Also the children of Noph and Tahapanes have broken the crown of your head. 17Have you not procured this to yourself, in that you have forsaken the LORD your God, when he led you by the way? 18And now what have you to do in the way of Egypt, to drink the waters of Sihor? or what have you to do in the way of Assyria, to drink the waters of the river? 19Your own wickedness shall correct you, and your backslidings shall reprove you: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that you have forsaken the LORD your God, and that my fear is not in you, said the Lord GOD of hosts. 20For of old time I have broken your yoke, and burst your bands; and you said, I will not transgress; when on every high hill and under every green tree you wander, playing the harlot. 21Yet I had planted you a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then are you turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine to me? 22For though you wash you with nitre, and take you much soap, yet your iniquity is marked before me, said the Lord GOD.
