God’s Case Against His Children

Heaven and earth, listen,
    because the Lord is speaking:
“I raised my children and helped them grow up,
    but they have turned against me.
An ox knows its master,
    and a donkey knows where its owner feeds it,
but the people of Israel do not know me;
    my people do not understand.”

How terrible! Israel is a nation of sin,
    a people loaded down with guilt,
a group of children doing evil,
    children who are full of evil.
They have left the Lord;
    they hate God, the Holy One of Israel,
    and have turned away from him as if he were a stranger.
