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?
“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?’
“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.
