Thussaith the LORD, Where is the bill of yourmother’sdivorcement, whom I have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I havesold you? Behold, for youriniquitieshave ye soldyourselves, and for yourtransgressions is yourmother put away.
Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was therenone to answer? Is my handshortened at all, that it cannotredeem? or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: theirfishstinketh, becausethere is no water, and dieth for thirst.
