New American Standard Bible
5 Thus says the Lord,
“(A)What injustice did your fathers find in Me,
That they went far from Me
And walked after (B)emptiness and became empty?
6 “They did not say, ‘Where is the Lord
Who (C)brought us up out of the land of Egypt,
Who (D)led us through the wilderness,
Through a land of deserts and of pits,
Through a land of drought and of [a]deep darkness,
Through a land that no one crossed
And where no man dwelt?’
7 “I brought you into the (E)fruitful land
To eat its fruit and its good things.
But you came and (F)defiled My land,
And My inheritance you made an abomination.
- Jeremiah 2:6 Or the shadow of death
