Context
Israel's Unfaithfulness

23How can you say, I am not polluted, I have not gone after Baalim? see your way in the valley, know what you have done: you are a swift dromedary traversing her ways; 24A wild ass used to the wilderness, that snuffs up the wind at her pleasure; in her occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her will not weary themselves; in her month they shall find her. 25Withhold your foot from being unshod, and your throat from thirst: but you said, There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go. 26As the thief is ashamed when he is found, so is the house of Israel ashamed; they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets. 27Saying to a stock, You are my father; and to a stone, You have brought me forth: for they have turned their back to me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us. 28But where are your gods that you have made you? let them arise, if they can save you in the time of your trouble: for according to the number of your cities are your gods, O Judah. 29Why will you plead with me? you all have transgressed against me, said the LORD. 30In vain have I smitten your children; they received no correction: your own sword has devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion. 31O generation, see you the word of the LORD. Have I been a wilderness to Israel? a land of darkness? why say my people, We are lords; we will come no more to you? 32Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number. 33Why trim you your way to seek love? therefore have you also taught the wicked ones your ways. 34Also in your skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but on all these. 35Yet you say, Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall turn from me. Behold, I will plead with you, because you say, I have not sinned. 36Why gad you about so much to change your way? you also shall be ashamed of Egypt, as you were ashamed of Assyria. 37Yes, you shall go forth from him, and your hands on your head: for the LORD has rejected your confidences, and you shall not prosper in them.
