My heritage has become to me
like a lion in the forest,
she has uttered her voice against me;
therefore I have hated her. Bible

“like a lion in the forest.” God’s people have rejected Him and uttered their voice against Him. Like a lion in the forest, Judah has even become dangerous to God, she rejects Him, twists His words, and hurts and even kills the individuals He loves, such as the prophets, the poor, and the widows.
