Jeremiah 2:22

For though you wash yourself with lye, and use much soap, yet your iniquity is marked before me, says the Lord GOD.
All Commentaries on Jeremiah 2:22 Go To Jeremiah 2

Cyril of Jerusalem

AD 386
Sin is a terrible thing, and the most grievous disease of the soul is iniquity, which corrupts the fiber of the soul and makes it liable to eternal fire. It is an evil freely chosen, the product of the will. The prophet clearly declares that we sin of our own free will: “I had planted you, a choice vine of fully tested stock; how could you turn into bitterness, a spurious vine?” The planting was good, but the fruit coming from the will is evil. So the planter is blameless, but the vine will burn with fire since it was planted for good and bore evil fruit of its own will.
