I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “backsliding”.

Jeremiah 2:19 Thine own wickedness shall correct thee,
and thy backslidings shall reprove thee:
know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter,
that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God,
and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.

Jeremiah 3:6 The LORD said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king,
Hast thou seen that which backsliding Israel hath done?
she is gone up upon every high mountain
and under every green tree,
and there hath played the harlot.

Jeremiah 3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes
whereby backsliding Israel

committed adultery I had put her away,
and given her a bill of divorce;
yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not,
but went and played the harlot also.

Jeremiah 3:11 And the LORD said unto me,
The backsliding Israel hath justified herself
more than treacherous Judah.

Jeremiah 3:12 Go and proclaim these words toward the north,
and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD;
and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you:
for I am merciful, saith the LORD,
and I will not keep anger for ever.

Jeremiah 3:14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD;
for I am married unto you:
and I will take you one of a city,
and two of a family,
and I will bring you to Zion:

Jeremiah 3:22 Return, ye backsliding children,
and I will heal your backslidings.
Behold, we come unto thee;
for thou art the LORD our God.

Jeremiah 5:6 Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them,
and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them,
a leopard shall watch over their cities:
every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces:
because their transgressions are many,
and their backslidings are increased.

Jeremiah 8:5 Why then is this people of Jerusalem
slidden back by a perpetual backsliding?
they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.

Jeremiah 14:7 O LORD, though our iniquities testify against us,
do thou it for thy name’s sake:
for our backslidings are many;
we have sinned against thee.

Jeremiah 31:22 How long wilt thou go about,
O thou backsliding daughter?
for the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth,
A woman shall compass a man.

Jeremiah 49:4 Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys,
thy flowing valley, O backsliding daughter?
that trusted in her treasures, saying,
Who shall come unto me?

Hosea 4:16 For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer:
now the LORD will feed them
as a lamb in a large place.

Hosea 11:7 And my people are bent to backsliding from me:
though they called them to the most High,
none at all would exalt him.

Hosea 14:4 I will heal their backsliding,
I will love them freely:
for mine anger is turned away from him.
