The Unfaithfulness Of Israel's Ancestors

5 This is what the Lord says:What fault did your fathers find in Me
that they went so far from Me,
followed worthless idols,
and became worthless themselves?
6 They stopped asking, “Where is the Lord
who brought us from the land of Egypt,
who led us through the wilderness,
through a land of deserts and ravines,

a land no one traveled through
and where no one lived?”
7 I brought you to a fertile land
to eat its fruit and bounty,
but after you entered, you defiled My land;
you made My inheritance detestable.
