The Wickedness of Judah

(A)Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O (B)earth;
    for the Lord has spoken:
“Children[a] (C)have I reared and brought up,
    but they have rebelled against me.
The ox (D)knows its owner,
    and the donkey its master's crib,
but Israel does (E)not know,
    my people do not understand.”

Ah, sinful nation,
    a people laden with iniquity,
(F)offspring of evildoers,
    children who deal corruptly!
They have forsaken the Lord,
    they have (G)despised (H)the Holy One of Israel,
    they are utterly (I)estranged.
