This is what Yahweh says:
    What did your ancestors find wrong with me
    that they went so far away from me?
    They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves.
They didn’t ask, “Where is Yahweh,
    who brought us from Egypt?
        He led us through the desert,
            through a wasteland and its pits,
                a land of drought and the shadow of death.
                    No one lives there or travels there.”
        I brought them into a fertile land
            to eat its fruit and its produce.
                They came and made my land unclean.[a]
                    They made my property disgusting.
