Deuteronomy 32:14-16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

14 Butter from cows and milk from sheep,
    with the best of lambs;
Bashan[a] bulls and goats,
    with the cream of finest wheat;
    and the foaming blood of grapes you drank.

15 So Jacob ate and was satisfied,
    Jeshurun[b] grew fat and kicked;
    you became fat and gross and gorged.
They forsook the God who made them
    and scorned the Rock of their salvation.
16 With strange gods they incited him,
    with abominations provoked him to anger.

Footnotes:

  1. 32:14 Bashan: a fertile grazing land east of the Jordan, famous for its sleek, strong cattle. Cf. Ps 22:13; Ez 39:18; Am 4:1.
  2. 32:15 Jeshurun: a term for Israel from yashar, meaning “upright”; its use here is possibly ironic.
