Context Readings

The Sin Of Judah

1 The sin of Judah, is written With a stylus of iron, With the point of a diamond: It is engraved Upon the tablet of their heart, And upon the horns of your altars; 2 So long as their sons remember their altars, and their Sacred Stems, By the green tree, - Upon the high hills, 3 O my mountain in the field Thy substance all thy treasures, for a prey, will I give: Thy high places for sin, within all thy bounds.
