An Invasion From The North

7 Why should I and how can I pass over this and forgive you for it? Your children have forsaken Me and sworn by those that are no gods. When I had fed them to the full and bound them to Me by oath, they committed [spiritual] adultery, assembling themselves in troops at the houses of [idol] harlots. 8 They were like fed stallions roaming at large; each one neighed after his neighbor's wife. 9 Shall I not punish them for these things? says the Lord; and shall I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?
