Jeremiah 3:1

Context
NET ©

“If a man divorces his wife and she leaves him and becomes another man’s wife, he may not take her back again. 1  Doing that would utterly defile the land. 2  But you, Israel, have given yourself as a prostitute to many gods. 3  So what makes you think you can return to me?” 4  says the Lord.

NIV ©

"If a man divorces his wife and she leaves him and marries another man, should he return to her again? Would not the land be completely defiled? But you have lived as a prostitute with many lovers—would you now return to me?" declares the LORD.

NASB ©

God says, "If a husband divorces his wife And she goes from him And belongs to another man, Will he still return to her? Will not that land be completely polluted? But you are a harlot with many lovers; Yet you turn to Me," declares the LORD.

NLT ©

"If a man divorces a woman and she marries someone else, he is not to take her back again, for that would surely corrupt the land. But you have prostituted yourself with many lovers, says the LORD. Yet I am still calling you to come back to me.

MSG ©

GOD's Message came to me as follows: "If a man's wife walks out on him And marries another man, can he take her back as if nothing had happened? Wouldn't that raise a huge stink in the land? And isn't that what you've done--'whored' your way with god after god? And now you want to come back as if nothing had happened." GOD's Decree.

BBE ©

They say, If a man puts away his wife and she goes from him and becomes another man’s, will he go back to her again? will not that land have been made unclean? but though you have been acting like a loose woman with a number of lovers, will you now come back to me? says the Lord.

NRSV ©

If a man divorces his wife and she goes from him and becomes another man’s wife, will he return to her? Would not such a land be greatly polluted? You have played the whore with many lovers; and would you return to me? says the LORD.

NKJV ©

"They say, ‘If a man divorces his wife, And she goes from him And becomes another man’s, May he return to her again?’ Would not that land be greatly polluted? But you have played the harlot with many lovers; Yet return to Me," says the LORD.

“If a man divorces his wife and she leaves him and becomes another man’s wife, he may not take her back again. 1  Doing that would utterly defile the land. 2  But you, Israel, have given yourself as a prostitute to many gods. 3  So what makes you think you can return to me?” 4  says the Lord.

NET © Notes

tn Heb “May he go back to her again?” The question is rhetorical and expects a negative answer.

sn For the legal background for the illustration that is used here see Deut 24:1-4.

tn Heb “Would the land not be utterly defiled?” The stative is here rendered actively to connect better with the preceding. The question is rhetorical and expects a positive answer.

tn Heb “But you have played the prostitute with many lovers.”

tn Heb “Returning to me.” The form is the bare infinitive which the KJV and ASV have interpreted as an imperative “Yet, return to me!” However, it is more likely that a question is intended, expressing surprise in the light of the law alluded to and the facts cited. For the use of the infinitive absolute in the place of a finite verb, cf. GKC 346 §113.ee. For the introduction of a question without a question marker, cf. GKC 473 §150.a.
