Rebellious Judah

Listen, you heavens,
    and let the[a] earth pay attention,
        because the Lord has spoken:

“I reared children
    and brought them to adulthood,
        but then they rebelled against me.
The ox knows its owner,
    and the donkey its master’s feeding trough,
but[b] Israel doesn’t know,
    and[c] my people don’t understand.

“Oh, you sinful nation!
    You people burdened down by iniquity!
You offspring of those who keep practicing what is evil!
    You corrupt children!

“They’ve abandoned the Lord;
    they’ve despised the Holy One of Israel;
        in their estrangement, they’ve walked away from me.[d]
