24 Since our youth, shameful things [C false gods] have eaten up
    everything our ·ancestors [fathers] worked for—
    their flocks and herds,
    their sons and daughters.
25 Let us lie down in our ·shame [humiliation],
    and let our disgrace cover us.
We have sinned against the Lord our God,
    both we and our ·ancestors [fathers].
From our youth until now,
    we have not ·obeyed [L listened to the voice of] the Lord our God.”
