The Lord our God is righteous, but we are still covered with shame. All of us—the people of Judah, the people of Jerusalem,16 our kings, our rulers, our priests, our prophets, and our ancestors have been put to shame,17 because we have sinned against the Lord our God18 and have disobeyed him. We did not listen to him or live according to his commandments.19 From the day the Lord brought our ancestors out of Egypt until the present day, we have continued to be unfaithful to him, and we have not hesitated to disobey him.20 Long ago, when the Lord led our ancestors out of Egypt, so that he could give us a rich and fertile land, he pronounced curses against us through his servant Moses. And today we are suffering because of those curses.21 We refused to obey the word of the Lord our God which he spoke to us through the prophets. Instead, we all did as we pleased and went on our own evil way. We turned to other gods and did things the Lord hates.
