And if you ask yourself,
"Why has this happened to me?"—
it is because of your many sins
that your skirts have been torn off
and your body mistreated.
Can the Ethiopian change his skin
or the leopard its spots?
Neither can you do good
who are accustomed to doing evil.
"I will scatter you like chaff
driven by the desert wind.
This is your lot,
the portion I have decreed for you,"
declares the Lord,
"because you have forgotten me
and trusted in false gods.
I will pull up your skirts over your face
that your shame may be seen-
your adulteries and lustful neighings,
your shameless prostitution!
I have seen your detestable acts
on the hills and in the fields.
Woe to you, O Jerusalem!
How long will you be unclean?"
~ Jeremiah 13:22-27, NIV
