Jeremiah 2:23

Context
NETBible

“How can you say, ‘I have not made myself unclean. I have not paid allegiance to 1  the gods called Baal.’ Just look at the way you have behaved in the Valley of Hinnom! 2  Think about the things you have done there! You are like a flighty, young female camel that rushes here and there, crisscrossing its path. 3

NET © Notes

tn Heb “I have not gone/followed after.” See the translator’s note on 2:5 for the meaning and usage of this idiom.

tn Heb “Look at your way in the valley.” The valley is an obvious reference to the Valley of Hinnom where Baal and Molech were worshiped and child sacrifice was practiced.

sn The metaphor is intended to depict Israel’s lack of clear direction and purpose without the Lord’s control.
