Jeremiah 3:1 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Wages of Apostasy

If[a] a man divorces his wife
and she leaves him to marry another,
can he ever return to her?
Wouldn’t such a land[b] become totally defiled?
But you!
You have played the prostitute with many partners
can you return to Me?
This is the Lord’s declaration.

Jeremiah 3:1 New International Version (NIV)

“If a man divorces his wife
    and she leaves him and marries another man,
should he return to her again?
    Would not the land be completely defiled?
But you have lived as a prostitute with many lovers
    would you now return to me?”
declares the Lord.
