Zema - Still Not?

Song Lyrics

Biblical Reference

Have you not brought this on yourself? Jeremiah 2:17 - Hast thou not procured this unto thyself,
in that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God,
when he led thee by the way?
Your own wickedness will correct you
The fear of Me is not in you
Jeremiah 2:19 - Thine own wickedness shall correct thee,
and thy backslidings shall reprove thee:
know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter,
that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God,
and that my fear is not in thee,
saith the Lord GOD of hosts.
On your skirts is found the
Blood of the poor innocents
Jeremiah 2:34 - Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.
They have not obeyed my voice
They have walked according to the
Dictates of their own hearts
Jeremiah 9:13-14 - And the LORD saith,
Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them,
and have not obeyed my voice,
neither walked therein; But have walked
after the imagination of their own heart,
and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them:
You are near in their mouth
But far from their mind
Jeremiah 12:2 - Thou hast planted them,
yea, they have taken root:
they grow, yea, they bring forth fruit:
thou art near in their mouth, and far from their reins.
Will you still not be made clean?
Will you still not?
Jeremiah 12:27 - I have seen thine adulteries,
and thy neighings, the lewdness of thy whoredom,
and thine abominations on the hills in the fields.
Woe unto thee, O Jerusalem!
wilt thou not be made clean?
when shall it once be?
Hear and give ear
Do not be proud
For the LORD has spoken
Before your feet stumble
And while you're looking for light
He turns it into the shadow of death
But if you will not hear it
My soul will weep in secret
For your pride
Jeremiah 13:15-17 - Hear ye, and give ear; be not proud:
for the LORD hath spoken. Give glory to the LORD your God,
before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble
upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light,
he turn it into the shadow of death,
and make it gross darkness.
But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep
in secret places for your pride;
and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears,
because the LORD's flock is carried away captive.
What will you say when He punishes you?
Why have these things come upon me?
Can the Ethiopian change his skin
Or the leopard its spots
Then may you also do good
Who are accustomed to do evil
This is your lot
Because you have forgotten Me
Jeremiah 12:21-25 - What wilt thou say when he shall punish thee?
for thou hast taught them to be captains,
and as chief over thee:
shall not sorrows take thee, as a woman in travail?
And if thou say in thine heart,
Wherefore come these things upon me?
For the greatness of thine iniquity are thy skirts discovered,
and thy heels made bare.
Can the Ethiopian change his skin,
or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good,
that are accustomed to do evil.
Therefore will I scatter them as the stubble
that passeth away by the wind of the wilderness.
This is thy lot, the portion of thy measures from me,
saith the LORD; because thou hast forgotten me,
and trusted in falsehood.
You are near in their mouth
But far from their mind

And your backslidings will rebuke you
Therefore I will uncover your skirts
Over your face
Jeremiah 12:26 - Therefore will I discover thy skirts upon thy face, that thy shame may appear.
