27 who say to a tree, ‘You are my father,’
and to a stone, ‘You gave me birth.’
For they have turned their back to me,
and not their face.
But rin the time of their trouble they say,
‘Arise and save us!’
33 mThey have turned to me their back and not their face. And though I have taught them npersistently, they have not listened oto receive instruction.
