    that they went far from me,
(B)and went after (C)worthlessness, and became worthless?

    who brought us up from the land of Egypt,
who led us (E)in the wilderness,
    in a land of deserts and pits,
in a land of drought and deep darkness,
    in a land that none passes through,

    to enjoy its fruits and its good things.
But when you came in, (G)you defiled my land
    and made my heritage an abomination.
