    that they went far from me,
(B)and went after (C)worthlessness, and became worthless?
They did not say, (D)‘Where is the Lord
    who brought us up from the land of Egypt,
who led us (E)in the wilderness,
    in a land of deserts and pits,
in a land of drought and deep darkness,
    in a land that none passes through,
    where no man dwells?’
(F)And I brought you into a plentiful land
    to enjoy its fruits and its good things.
But when you came in, (G)you defiled my land
    and made my heritage an abomination.
