ESV — Jeremiah 5:3; Isaiah 9:13; Amos 4:6; Amos 4:8-11

O Lord, do not your eyes look for truth?

dYou have struck them down,

but they felt no anguish;

you have consumed them,

but they refused to take correction.

eThey have made their faces harder than rock;

they have refused to repent.


13  The people kdid not turn to him who struck them,

nor inquire of the Lord of hosts.


Israel Has Not Returned to the Lord

“I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities,

and tlack of bread in all your places,

uyet you did not return to me,”

declares the Lord.


so two or three cities xwould wander to another city

to drink water, and would not be satisfied;

uyet you did not return to me,”

declares the Lord.

y“I struck you with blight and mildew;

your many gardens and your vineyards,

your fig trees and your olive trees zthe locust devoured;

uyet you did not return to me,”

declares the Lord.

10  “I sent among you a pestilence aafter the manner of Egypt;

I killed your young men with the sword,

and bcarried away your horses,1

and cI made the stench of your camp go up into your nostrils;

uyet you did not return to me,”

declares the Lord.

11  “I overthrew some of you,

das when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,

and you were eas a brand2 plucked out of the burning;

uyet you did not return to me,”

declares the Lord.
