16 (A)They stirred him to jealousy with strange gods;
    with abominations they provoked him to anger.
17 (B)They sacrificed to demons that were no gods,
    to gods they had never known,
to (C)new gods that had come recently,

for they are a perverse generation,
    children in whom is no faithfulness.
