Jeremiah 2:14-16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
14 Is Israel a slave, a house-born servant?
Why then has he become plunder?
15 Against him lions roar,
they raise their voices.
They have turned his land into a waste;
his cities are charred ruins, without an inhabitant.
16 Yes, the people of Memphis and Tahpanhes
shave the crown of your head.
