you seduced me

From the Book of the Prophet Jermiah


You duped me, O Lord, and I let myself be duped; 

you were too strong for me, and you triumphed. 

All the day I am the object of laughter; everyone mocks me. 

Whenever I speak, I must cry out, 

violence and outrage is my message

the word of the Lord has brought me 

derision and reproach all the day. 

I say to myself, I will not mention him, 

I will speak in his name no more. 

But then it becomes like fire burning in my heart, 

imprisoned in my bones; 

I grow weary holding it in, I cannot endure it. 


Jeremiah 20:7-9
