Consequences Of Apostasy

22 "Although you wash yourself with lye And use much soap, The stain of your iniquity is before Me," declares the Lord GOD. 23 "How can you say, 'I am not defiled, I have not gone after the Baals'? Look at your way in the valley! Know what you have done! You are a swift young camel entangling her ways, 24 A wild donkey accustomed to the wilderness, That sniffs the wind in her passion. In the time of her heat who can turn her away? All who seek her will not become weary; In her month they will find her.
