This is what the Lord says:

What fault did your fathers find in Me(A)
that they went so far from Me,
followed worthless idols,(B)
and became worthless themselves?(C)
They stopped asking, “Where is the Lord(D)
who brought us from the land of Egypt,
who led us through the wilderness,(E)
through a land of deserts and ravines,
through a land of drought and darkness,[a]
a land no one traveled through
and where no one lived?”
I brought you to a fertile land(F)
to eat its fruit and bounty,
but after you entered, you defiled My land;(G)
you made My inheritance(H) detestable.
