Jeremiah 2:21

Context
NET ©

I planted you in the land like a special vine of the very best stock. Why in the world have you turned into something like a wild vine that produces rotten, foul-smelling grapes? 1 

NIV ©

I had planted you like a choice vine of sound and reliable stock. How then did you turn against me into a corrupt, wild vine?

NASB ©

"Yet I planted you a choice vine, A completely faithful seed. How then have you turned yourself before Me Into the degenerate shoots of a foreign vine?

NLT ©

"How could this happen? When I planted you, I chose a vine of the purest stock––the very best. How did you grow into this corrupt wild vine?

MSG ©

You were a select vine when I planted you from completely reliable stock. And look how you've turned out--a tangle of rancid growth, a poor excuse for a vine.

BBE ©

But when you were planted by me, you were a noble vine, in every way a true seed: how then have you been changed into the branching plant of a strange vine?

NRSV ©

Yet I planted you as a choice vine, from the purest stock. How then did you turn degenerate and become a wild vine?

NKJV ©

Yet I had planted you a noble vine, a seed of highest quality. How then have you turned before Me Into the degenerate plant of an alien vine?

unto me?

NET © Notes

tc Heb “I planted you as a choice vine, all of it true seed. How then have you turned into a putrid thing to me, a strange [or wild] vine.” The question expresses surprise and consternation. The translation is based on a redivision of the Hebrew words סוּרֵי הַגֶּפֶן (sure haggefen) into סוֹרִיָּה גֶּפֶן (soriyyah gefen) and the recognition of a hapax legomenon סוֹרִיָּה (soriyyah) meaning “putrid, stinking thing.” See HALOT 707 s.v. סוֹרִי.
