Jeremiah 2:6-8 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

They didn’t ask, “Where is the Lord,
    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.
The priests didn’t ask, “Where is the Lord?”
    Those who deal with my teachings didn’t know me.
    The rulers rebelled against me.
    The prophets prophesied in the name of Baal
        and followed statues that couldn’t help them.
