There and Then

Why do you sow your seed
     among the thorns?
What you grow there
     will only be choked,
          even though there
               lies great promise.
My furrows ready wait
     and the fruit of your labor
          will more than flower.
Break up your fallow ground
     and plant seeds I give you,
          lest your private crops I burn
               so no man can quench until
                    they blow as ash in the wind.

I will not remain angry forever,
     only own your sinning ways, and
          I will bring you to fertile Zion then.

Jeremiah 3 and 4
