This is what the Lord says:
“Do you think that I was not fair to your ancestors?
    Is that why they turned away from me?
Your ancestors worshiped worthless idols,
    and they became worthless themselves.
Your ancestors did not say,
    ‘The Lord brought us out of Egypt.
He led us through the desert,
    through a dry and rocky land.
He led us through a dark and dangerous land.
    No one lives there;
    people don’t even travel through that land.
But the Lord led us through that land.
    So where is he now?’

“I brought you into a good land,
    a land filled with many good things.
I did this so that you could eat the fruit and crops that grow there.
    But you only made my land ‘dirty.’
I gave that land to you,
    but you made it a bad place.
