American Standard Version
Is Israel a servant? is he a home-born'slave ? why is he become a prey?
Young's Literal Translation
A servant is Israel? Is he a child of the house? Wherefore hath he been for a prey?
Jeremiah 2:14 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Is Israel a servant? - Is he a slave purchased with money, or a servant born in the family? He is a son himself. If so, then, why is he spoiled? Not because God has not shown him love and kindness; but because he forsook God, turned to and is joined with idols.
