“To God, the people of Israel have been as a wife in covenant relationship with him.  And yet their continual idolatry is a constant reminder of their unfaithfulness to the covenant.  Each generation has been adulterous in its wickedness abdn idolatry, and now the time is swiftly approaching when God is going to put Israel away as an adulterous spouse.”
