Context Readings

God's Case Against The People

14 I will not review over your daughters when they shall commit fornication, and over your brides when they shall commit adultery: fur they will separate themselves with harlots, and with prostitutes will they sacrifice: and the people will not understand, they shall be thrown down. 15 If thou Israel commit fornication Judah shall not transgress; and ye shall not come to Gilgal, and ye shall not go up to the house of vanity, and ye shall not swear, Jehovah lives. 16 For as a stubborn heifer Israel was stubborn: now will Jehovah feed them as a lamb in a wide place.
