Jeremiah 2:14-16 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

14 “Israel is not a slave, is he?
    He was not born a slave, was he?
    Then why did the enemy carry him away as a captive?
15 Like a lion the enemy has roared at Israel.
    They have destroyed your[a] land.
Your cities have been burned,
    and no one is left in them.
16 People from Memphis and Tahpanhes[b]
    have smashed the top of your head.
