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 land.
Your cities have been burned,
and no one is left in them.
16 People from Memphis and Tahpanhes
have smashed the top of your head.
