The prophet Jeremiah puts palm to forehead, wondering "How could I have let myself be taken in?" But "taken in" more properly may be rendered seduced. "You could say that you're leading me on / but it's just what I want You to do; / Don't You notice how hopelessly I'm lost-- / That's why I'm following You." God's spokespersons sign a contract--or rather, enter into a covenant--that seems all fine print; and yet so many stick around! It must be worth it.
(Incidentally, who else notices the irony in Irene as a hurricane name? eirene: peace!)
