Thus says Adonai:

“What fault did your fathers find in Me
    that they strayed so far from Me?
They walked after worthless things,
    becoming worthless themselves?[a]
They did not ask ‘Where is Adonai,
    who brought us up from the land of Egypt
    and led us through the wilderness,
    through a land of deserts and rifts,
    through a land of drought and distress,
    through a land where no one travels,
        where no one lives?’
Yet I brought you into a fertile land,
        to eat of its fruit and goodness.
    When you came, you defiled My land.
    You made My heritage an abomination.
