10 Then the Israelites cried(A) out to the Lord, “We have sinned(B) against you, forsaking our God and serving the Baals.”(C)

11 The Lord replied, “When the Egyptians,(D) the Amorites,(E) the Ammonites,(F) the Philistines,(G) 12 the Sidonians, the Amalekites(H) and the Maonites[a](I) oppressed you(J) and you cried to me for help, did I not save you from their hands? 13 But you have forsaken(K) me and served other gods,(L) so I will no longer save you. 14 Go and cry out to the gods you have chosen. Let them save(M) you when you are in trouble!(N)
