Jeremiah 2:14-16 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)
14 “Is Israel a slave? Is he a homeborn servant?
Why then has he become a prey?
15 The lions have roared against him,
they have roared loudly.
They have made his land a waste;
his cities are in ruins, without inhabitant.
16 Moreover, the men of Memphis and Tah′panhes
have broken the crown of your head.
