The prophet Jeremiah spoke of Israel as a backsliding harlot. We are the people that he called "her treacherous sister".
What people are we?
6: The LORD said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.Answer: Judah
7: And I said after she had done all these things, Turn thou unto me. But she returned not. And her treacherous sister Judah saw it.
8: And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.
9: And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.
10: And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD.
