What wrong did your fathers find in me
that they went far from me,
and went after worthlessness, and became worthless?
And I brought you into a plentiful land
to enjoy its fruits and its good things.
but when you came in you defiled my land,
and made my heritage an abomination.
Has a nation changed its gods,
even though there are no gods?
but my people have changed their glory
for that which does not profit.
be appalled, O heavens, at this,
be shocked, be utterly desolate,
says the Lord.
The Book of Jeremiah 2: 5, 7, 10-12
