2 And so, as Yahweh had ordered, I bought a waistcloth and put it round my waist.
5 So I went and hid it by the Euphrates as Yahweh had ordered me.
8 Then the word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows,
10 This evil people, these people who refuse to listen to my words, who follow their own stubborn inclinations and run after other gods, serving and worshipping them -- this people will become like this waistcloth, no good for anything.
11 For just as a waistcloth clings to a man's waist, so I made the whole House of Israel and the whole House of Judah cling to me, Yahweh declares, to be my people, my glory, my honour and my pride. But they have not listened."
13 you are to say, "Yahweh says this: Look, I shall fill all the inhabitants of this country, the kings who occupy the throne of David, the priests, the prophets and all the citizens of Jerusalem, with drunkenness.
15 Listen and pay attention, do not be proud: Yahweh is speaking!
16 Give glory to Yahweh your God before the darkness comes, before your feet stumble on the darkened mountains. You hope for light, but he will turn it to shadow dark as death, will change it to blackness.
24 'I shall scatter you like chaff on the desert wind.
25 This is your share, the part allotted you, from me, Yahweh declares, because you have forgotten me and put your trust in Delusion.
27 Oh! Your adulteries, your shrieks of pleasure, your vile prostitution! On the hills, in the fields, I have seen your Horrors. Jerusalem, disaster is coming for you! How much longer till you are made clean?'
