O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.

17:13 fountain. See note on Jeremiah 2:13. Those who reject the water of life will have their names blotted out of God’s book of life (Revelation 3:5); instead their names will only be “written in the earth,” which will “pass away” (Matthew 24:35).
