3:22 Come back to me, you wayward people.
I want to cure your waywardness. 1
Say, 2 ‘Here we are. We come to you
because you are the Lord our God.
Let us bear the disgrace that we deserve. 4
For we have sinned against the Lord our God,
both we and our ancestors.
From earliest times to this very day
we have not obeyed the Lord our God.’
2 tn Or “They say.” There is an obvious ellipsis of a verb of saying here since the preceding words are those of the
3 tn Heb “Let us lie down in….”
4 tn Heb “Let us be covered with disgrace.”
