“What did your ancestors find wrong with me
    that they left me,
and pursued worthless things,[a]
    and so they became worthless?

    who brought us up from the land of Egypt,
who led us through the wilderness,
    through the land of desert and pits,
through the land of dryness and deep darkness,
    a land that people don’t pass through,
        and where no one lives?’
“I brought you into the fruitful land to eat its fruit
    and its good things.
But you came in, defiled my land,
    and made my inheritance into an abomination.
