They say:
Heb. Saying
If a man:
"When¹ a manª hath takenª° a wife,ª and marriedª° her, and it come to pass¹ that¹ she findª° no¹ favourª in his eyes,ª because¹ he hath foundª° someª uncleannessª in her: then let him writeª° her a billª of divorcement,ª and giveª° [it] in her hand,ª and sendª° her out of his house.ª¹ ... Her formerª husband,ª which¹ sent her away,ª° mayª° not¹ takeª° her againª° to be¹ his wife,ª after² that¹¹ she is defiled;ª° for¹ that¹ [is] abominationª beforeª the LORD:ª and thou shalt not¹ cause¹ the landª to sin,ª° which¹ the LORDª thy Godª givethª° thee [for] an inheritance.ª" {Deu 24:1-4}
shall not that:
"And it came to pass¹ through the lightnessª¹ of her whoredom,ª that she defiledª°¹ the land,ª and committed adulteryª° with¹ stonesª and with¹ stocks.ª" {Jer 3:9} + "And I broughtª° you into¹ a plentifulª country,ª to eatª° the fruitª thereof and the goodnessª thereof; but when ye entered,ª° ye defiledª°¹ my land,ª and madeª° mine heritageª an abomination.ª" {Jer 2:7} + "Defile²° not ye yourselves¹¹ in any¹ of these things:ª for¹ in all¹ these¹ the nationsª are defiledª° which¹ I¹ cast outª° beforeª¹ you: ... That the landª spue not you outª°¹¹ also, when ye defileª° it, as¹ it spued outª°¹ the nationsª that¹ [were] beforeª you." {Lev 18:24-28} + "The earthª also is defiledª° under¹ the inhabitantsª° thereof; because¹ they have transgressedª° the laws,ª changedª° the ordinance,ª brokenª° the everlastingª covenant.ª" {Isa 24:5} + "Ariseª° ye, and depart;²°¹ for¹ this¹ [is] not¹ [your] rest:ª because¹ it is polluted,ª° it shall destroyª° [you], even with a soreª° destruction.ª" {Mic 2:10}
but thou hast:
"For¹ of old timeª¹ I have brokenª° thy yoke,ª [and] burstª° thy bands;ª and thou saidst,ª° I will not¹ transgress;ª°°² when¹ upon¹ every¹ highª hillª and under¹ every¹ greenª treeª thou¹ wanderest,ª° playing the harlot.ª°" {Jer 2:20} + "How¹ canst thou say,ª° I am not¹ polluted,ª° I have not¹ goneª° afterª Baalim?ª seeª° thy wayª in the valley,ª knowª° what¹ thou hast done:ª° [thou art] a swiftª dromedaryª traversingª° her ways;ª" {Jer 2:23} + "Then they shall bring outª°¹ the damselª to¹ the doorª of her father'sª house,ª and the men²¹ of her cityª shall stoneª° her with stonesª that she die:ª° because¹ she hath wroughtª° follyª in Israel,ª to play the whoreª° in her father'sª house:ª so shalt thou put²° evil² awayª°¹ from amongª¹ you." {Deu 22:21} + "And his concubineª played the whoreª° against¹ him, and went away²°¹ from¹¹ him unto¹ her father'sª houseª to¹ Bethlehemjudah,ªª and was¹ there¹ fourª whole¹ months.ª²" {Jdg 19:2} + "Thou hast also committed fornicationª° with¹ the Egyptiansªª thy neighbours,ª greatª of flesh;ª and hast increasedª°¹ thy whoredoms,ª to provoke me to anger.ª°" {Ezk 16:26} + "Thou hast played the whoreª° also with¹ the Assyrians,ªª because² thou wast unsatiable;²°¹¹¹ yea, thou hast played the harlotª° with them, and yet¹ couldest not¹ be satisfied.²¹ ... Thou hast moreover multipliedª°¹ thy fornicationª in¹ the landª of Canaanª unto Chaldea;ª and yet¹ thou wast not¹ satisfiedª° herewith.ª" {Ezk 16:28-29} + "And the namesª of them [were] Aholahª the elder,ª and Aholibahª her sister:ª and they were¹ mine, and they bareª° sonsª and daughters.ª Thus [were] their names;ª Samariaª [is] Aholah,ª and Jerusalemª Aholibah.ª ... And they shall recompenseª° your lewdnessª upon¹ you, and ye shall bearª° the sinsª of your idols:ª and ye shall knowª° that¹ I¹ [am] the Lordª GOD.ª" {Ezk 23:4-49} + "The beginningª of the wordª° of the LORDª by Hosea.ª And the LORDª saidª° to¹ Hosea,ª Go,²°¹ takeª° unto thee a wifeª of whoredomsª and childrenª of whoredoms:ª for¹ the landª hath committed great²° whoredom,ª° [departing] fromª¹ the LORD.ª" {Hsa 1:2} + "For¹ their motherª hath played the harlot:ª° she that conceivedª° them hath done shamefully:²°¹ for¹ she said,ª° I will go²°¹ afterª my lovers,ª° that giveª° [me] my breadª and my water,ª my woolª and my flax,ª mine oilª and my drink.ª ... And she shall follow²° after¹¹ her lovers,ª° but she shall not¹ overtakeª° them; and she shall seekª° them, but shall not¹ findª° [them]: then shall she say,ª° I will go²°¹ and returnª° to¹ my firstª husband;ª for¹ then¹ [was it] betterª with me than now.ª¹" {Hsa 2:5-7}
yet return:
"Goª° and proclaimª°¹ these¹ wordsª toward the north,ª and say,ª° Return,ª° thou backslidingª Israel,ª saithª° the LORD;ª [and] I will not¹ cause mine angerª to fallª° upon you: for¹ I¹ [am] merciful,ª saithª° the LORD,ª [and] I will not¹ keepª° [anger] for ever.ª ... Turn,ª° O backslidingª children,ª saithª° the LORD;ª for¹ I¹ am marriedª° unto you: and I will takeª° you oneª of a city,ª¹ and twoª of a family,ª¹ and I will bringª° you to Zion:ª" {Jer 3:12-14} + "Return,ª° ye backslidingª children,ª [and] I will healª° your backslidings.ª Behold,¹ we comeª° unto thee; for¹ thou¹ [art] the LORDª our God.ª" {Jer 3:22} + "If¹ thou wilt return,ª° O Israel,ª saithª° the LORD,ª returnª° unto¹ me: and if¹ thou wilt put awayª° thine abominationsª out of my sight,ª¹ then shalt thou not¹ remove.ª°" {Jer 4:1} + "O Jerusalem,ª washª° thine heartª from wickedness,ª¹ that¹ thou mayest be saved.ª° How long¹¹ shall thy vainª thoughtsª lodgeª° withinª thee?" {Jer 4:14} + "Moreover thou shalt sayª° unto¹ them, Thus¹ saithª° the LORD;ª Shall they fall,ª° and not¹ arise?ª° shall he turn away,ª° and not¹ return?ª° ... I hearkenedª° and heard,ª° [but] they spake¹ not¹ aright:²°¹ no¹ manª repentedª° him ofª his wickedness,ª saying,ª° What¹ have I done?ª° every one¹ turnedª° to his course,ª as the horseª rushethª° into the battle.ª" {Jer 8:4-6} + "But if from thence¹¹ thou shalt seekª°¹ the LORDª thy God,ª thou shalt findª° [him], if¹ thou seekª° him with all¹ thy heartª and with all¹ thy soul.ª ... (For¹ the LORDª thy Godª [is] a mercifulª God;)ª he will not¹ forsakeª° thee, neither¹ destroyª° thee, nor¹ forgetª°¹ the covenantª of thy fathersª which¹ he swareª° unto them." {Deu 4:29-31} + "Seekª° ye the LORDª while he may be found,ª° callª° ye upon him while he is¹ near:ª ... For¹ [as] the heavensª are higherª° than the earth,ª¹ so¹ are my ways² higherª°¹ than your ways,ª¹ and my thoughtsª than your thoughts.ª¹" {Isa 55:6-9} + "Sayª° unto¹ them, [As] I¹ live,ª saithª° the Lordª GOD,ª I have no pleasureª°¹ in the deathª of the wicked;ª but¹¹ that the wickedª turnª° from his wayª¹ and live:ª° turnª° ye, turnª° ye from your evilª ways;ª¹ for why¹ will ye die,ª° O houseª of Israel?ª" {Ezk 33:11} + "O Israel,ª returnª° unto¹ the LORDª thy God;ª for¹ thou hast fallenª° by thine iniquity.ª ... I will healª° their backsliding,ª I will loveª° them freely:ª for¹ mine angerª is turned awayª° from¹ him." {Hsa 14:1-4} + "Therefore sayª° thou unto¹ them, Thus¹ saithª° the LORDª of hosts;ª Turnª° ye unto¹ me, saithª° the LORDª of hosts,ª and I will turnª° unto¹ you, saithª° the LORDª of hosts.ª" {Zch 1:3} + "Andª he would fainª° have filledª° his²¹ bellyª withª the¹ husksª thatª the¹ swineª did eat:ª° andª no manª gaveª° unto him.ª ... Forª thisª myª sonª wasª° dead,ª andª is alive again;ª°² he wasª° lost,ª° andª is found.ª° Andª they beganª° to be merry.ª°" {Lke 15:16-24}
