Jeremiah 3:10

3:10 In spite of all this, 1  Israel’s sister, unfaithful Judah, has not turned back to me with any sincerity; she has only pretended to do so,” 2  says the Lord.

Jeremiah 12:2


12:2 You plant them like trees and they put down their roots. 3 

They grow prosperous and are very fruitful. 4 

They always talk about you,

but they really care nothing about you. 5 

1 tn Heb “And even in all this.”

2 tn Heb “ has not turned back to me with all her heart but only in falsehood.”

3 tn Heb “You planted them and they took root.”

4 tn Heb “they grow and produce fruit.” For the nuance “grow” for the verb which normally means “go, walk,” see BDB 232 s.v. חָלַךְ Qal.I.3 and compare Hos 14:7.

5 tn Heb “You are near in their mouths, but far from their kidneys.” The figure of substitution is being used here, “mouth” for “words” and “kidneys” for passions and affections. A contemporary equivalent might be, “your name is always on their lips, but their hearts are far from you.”
