Jeremiah 13
Jer 13:1 Thus saith the LORD unto me, Go and get thee a linen girdle, and put it upon thy loins, and put it not in water. Jer 13:1 Thus the Lord said to me, "Go and buy yourself a linen waistband and put it around your waist, but do not put it in water." Jer 13:1 τάδε λέγει κύριος βάδισον καὶ κτῆσαι σεαυτῷ περίζωμα λινοῦν καὶ περίθου περὶ τὴν ὀσφύν σου καὶ ἐν ὕδατι οὐ διελεύσεται

Jer 13:4 λαβὲ τὸ περίζωμα τὸ περὶ τὴν ὀσφύν σου καὶ ἀνάστηθι καὶ βάδισον ἐπὶ τὸν Εὐφράτην καὶ κατάκρυψον αὐτὸ ἐκεῖ ἐν τῇ τρυμαλιᾷ τῆς πέτρας

Jer 13:10 τὴν πολλὴν ταύτην ὕβριν τοὺς μὴ βουλομένους ὑπακούειν τῶν λόγων μου καὶ πορευθέντας ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων τοῦ δουλεύειν αὐτοῖς καὶ τοῦ προσκυνεῖν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἔσονται ὥσπερ τὸ περίζωμα τοῦτο ὃ οὐ χρησθήσεται εἰς οὐθέν
Jer 13:11 For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, saith the LORD; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear. Jer 13:11 For as the waistband clings to the waist of a man, so I made the whole household of Israel and the whole household of Judah cling to Me,' declares the Lord, 'that they might be for Me a people, for renown, for praise and for glory; but they did not listen.'
